If you want to make it super fancy, caramelize a couple onions to mix in, to add an incredible depth of flavor.
Dried onions are needed in this recipe- don't swap this out. They absorb some of the moisture in the coconut cream and make the dip thicker. If the dip is still too thin for your liking, add a tiny pinch of xanthan gum and stir it in well.
If you prefer a smoother dip, once the dried onions reconstitute, whiz the mixture up in a blender or use an immersion blender to smooth it out.
