Hummus, guac, and aioli have always been the tried-and-true spreads to bring to parties. But after years noshing on the same creamy, monochromatic bowls of mashed avocados and chickpeas at parties, it's time for some much-needed change in the flavor department.

Enter: These vegan dips. Each dip features an out-of-the-box ingredient that wakes up the tastebuds, from fuschia-colored beets to crunchy seeds. Plus, aioli gets a vegan treatment by swapping eggs for flavorful veggies. Spoon the vegan dips over chicken, toss them in a salad, or make them the star of the show by eating them with pita chips. The options are endlessly delicious.
