This Paleo 7-Layer Dip is delicious! It’s Paleo, vegan, Whole30, and perfect for summer cookouts. Because it has 7 layers, it takes some time to put together . . . but I guarantee it’s worth your while! This recipe earned five-star reviews from my whole family!
I’m so excited to share this recipe with you! It’s so good, I could eat it with a spoon — who needs chips?! Although I made this a few weeks ago, I think it’s the perfect recipe for this time of year. We just had a barbecue the other day (for Father’s Day), and obviously every barbecue needs good appetizers! This Paleo 7-Layer Dip is the perfect summer appetizer, because a.) it’s Paleo/vegan/vegetarian/Whole30/nut-free/all that jazz, b.) it’s big enough to serve a crowd, and c.) it’s freaking delicious!!
Bonus: the only baking involved is roasting a sweet potato, which you can do ahead of time as part of your weekly meal prep (if you’re one of those people . . . I’m not haha).
So, this is a Paleo 7-Layer Dip. The seven layers are:
- Purple Sweet Potato “Refried Beans”
- My dairy-free, nut-free “Cheese Dip”
I don’t know why people add olives to 7-layer dip, but I figured I’d keep them for tradition’s sake. Also, I think the lettuce is kind of pointless, but it adds some texture and flavor . . . so it’s okay I guess 😉
I used regular tomato (I think it was a Roma) & diced it, but halved cherry tomatoes would be awesome!
You can serve this dip with plantain chips, root veggie chips, or traditional tortilla chips. It’s also good with bell peppers and raw carrots! I mean, what wouldn’t be good if it’s smothered in Paleo “beans,” “cheese,” salsa, and guac?
About the beans . . . remember my Sweet Potato Tahini Breakfast Bowl from March? I thought the potato tasted like refried beans after I mixed it with tahini, so I made another batch for my Paleo 7-Layer Dip! This time, I didn’t have time to make tahini, so I added peanut butter instead! You can use any nut or seed butter you like. 🙂
I hope you love this recipe! It’s truly delicious, and I think it’s perfect for summer barbecues and cookouts. If you miss 7-layer dip and can’t have it because of dietary restrictions, this is the recipe for you!!
Have a great day!
