Vegan Ranch Dressing

Regardless of your desire to be vegan, or go completely dairy free, there is no room to argue that store bought dressings are nasty. It’s counterproductive to clean up your diet by incorporating more vegetables if you are just going to cover them with chemicals.

Ingredients
  

Vegan Ranch -- makes 1.5 cups

  • 3/4 cups cashews soaked
  • 3/4 cups water can be reduced or eliminated to create a thicker veggie dip
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
  • 2-4 tbsp yeast flakes these add a “cheesy flavor”. start with 2 and increase to your liking. I use 4!
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1/2 tsp each garlic powder, onion powder, dill weed
  • 1/4 tsp each ground mustard, celery salt, black pepper

Bulk Ranch Seasoning Recipe--Ready when you need it!

  • 1 cup yeast flakes
  • 3 tbsp parsley
  • 4 tsp. each garlic powder, onion powder, dill weed
  • 2 tsp each ground mustard, celery salt, black pepper

Instructions
 

  • For a southwest ranch, add 2 tsp taco seasoning (or cumin/chili powder) and 1 tsp cilantro. Could also use curry!
  • Mix all ingredients in you food processor, Vitamix or blender.
  • Think ahead. If you like this recipe, prepare a batch of the bulk vegan ranch seasoning. Blend 1/2 cup of seasoning. with 3/4 cup soaked cashews, 3/4 cups water and 2 tsp apple cider vinegar or lemon juice.

Notes

Buy the cashews (and other nuts) in bulk, soak them overnight and store in freezer. Frozen nuts are no problem for the Vitamix and other high speed blenders, so no need to thaw. Read more about the importance of soaking nuts (and grains) . . .
