Really Ranch Dressing!

Category: Condiments, Dressings, Spreads

Suitable for a: vegan diet



I've talked about posting this several times but never actually did it (I was just reminded)...

The BEST and most "authentic" tasting vegan ranch you can find, and you probably have all the ingredients to make it right now!

1 cup vegan mayonnaise

1/2 cup plain soy milk

1/2 cup vegan sour cream (OR 1/2 cup pureed silken tofu)

1 tsp. white vinegar

1/2 tsp celery salt OR:

1 tsp celery seed AND 1/4 tsp salt

2 tablespoons very finely chopped green onions (or fresh chives, chopped)

1/4 teaspoon onion powder

1 Tablespoon minced parsley (fresh is WAY better here)

1 garlic clove, finely minced

(You can whiz parsley, garlic and a little soymilk in the food processor to make it faster)

1/4 teaspoon paprika

1/8 teaspoon cayenne

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper



Place all ingredients in a jar with a tight-fitting lid.

Shake well to blend. Adjust seasonings to your preference.

Makes 2 cups.

Did you ever make this, Dks64? Just wondering how you liked it...

Cool! Yeah, I like it better after it's "aged" overnight, but can't always wait that long!!

I just made some tonight and my daughter put it on a dish of RICE! (Actually looked pretty good...)

I'll try it again with vegan sour cream. I'm really bummed, that was a lot of veganaise I used...

ETA: It wasn't the recipes fault, I have an issue with tofu sometimes.
Hmmm... was the tofu fresh? I've never heard of tofu tasting "pumpkin-y" but I don't really have issues with it.
(A little late now, but...) could you add a little lemon juice and more garlic to counter the tofu taste that you don't care for?

It's also good as a topping for pasta, I wonder if the taste would be as pronounced then?

Bumping - 'cause I just got a request for this.... You MUST make it for your Thanksgiving salad and dip....
Oh you guys are FUNNY! I thought everyone had salad - or at least carrots and celery with dip at Thanksgiving?

This does thicken upon standing. If you can't wait (who can?) just use less soymilk.

Also, I discovered this last night...

Do not make this and leave unattended near teenagers.

They will eat it with spoons, like soup. :p
I took this in a small bottle, to a BBQ the other day, because I knew they'd have a large veggie and dip platter and I could just use it for my veggies.... I left it on our table to go get more food and the man next to me "borrowed" it (thinking the host had provided it).

I didn't say anything, figuring he might not notice the difference. But he KEPT USING IT and then went to find the host and COMPLAIN when he "ran out of the REALLY GOOD RANCH DRESSING" and couldn't find any more of it on the main table. Teehee!
YAY! So glad it worked for you!!!

(rice milk might make it thinner, but as you said, just add milk to your preference...)
