theres stuff you can buy from pangea... www.veganstore.com

its in powder form, you mix it with oil and water... and voila ranch

its pretty good, but be warned... its a bit too thin if you follow their instructions

i havent eaten real ranch in like 11+ years because i didnt like it, or i was scared to try it or something... but

i think this stuff is really good

ive used it on vegan buffalo wings, salads, and grilled veggies

Try those, and if you're ever in L.A., Native Foods has the most awesome ranch dressing ever, and it's vegan. I buy it by the pint when I'm there for a meal sometimes. Comes in handy at home for dips and salads.

This recipe was in the Veggie Works cookbook

Creamy Ranch Dressing

1 12 oz package of silken-firm tofu

1 cup soy milk

2 Tablespoons onion powder

1 Tablespoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon salt

few sprigs parsley

1/2 cup soy oil

Blend all ingredients - except soy oil - in blender. After suitable period, slowly dribble oil while blending, until smooth yet thick. Keep refrigerated. {6 - 10 portions}

I have never tried this recipe. I was actually planning on making it tonight.

I was told that Hidden Valley ranch dressing (dry package - buttermilk variety) is vegan. When I have made it, I use soy milk and Sour Supreme. It's good, but it contains msg, so I was hoping to get away from that.

(Later) I made it and it wasn't very good. Grrr...!

Tasted too plain and just not right. Rats!

I heard that the dry-packet dressing is not vegan, but the dry-packet buttermilk is. I checked it the other night while at the store and it's true. The regular has buttermilk solids in it while the buttermilk flavour does not.

I don't know about the dip, though
I'll have to check that out the next time I go to the store.

In my first post above...I mentioned the package mix. I use it now and then, but I don't like to because it contains msg.

Hidden Valley The Original RANCH Buttermilk Recipe Salad Dressing Mix

These are the ingredients:

Salt, Monosodium Glutamate, Maltodextrin, Garlic, Onion, Parsley, Spice, Carrageenan, Calcium Sterate. No Preservatives.

NOW DO YOU SEE WHY I WOULD PREFER TO STOP USING IT?

zimngir...blue cheese? I think I love you!


kpickell, msg is Monosodium Glutamate.

Monosodium glutamate is the sodium salt of glutamic acid. I have read bad things about it...and it is something that I just try not to eat very much of. (It is in a lot of foods).

Here is the ranch dressing zimngir was talking about:

Vegan Ranch Dressing

1 clove garlic, peeled

Pinch of salt

1/3 cup vegan sour cream or vegan mayo

3/4 cup soymilk

2 Tbs fresh lime juice

1 Tbs minced fresh parsley

1 Tbs minced fresh chives

Salt and pepper

Put garlic and salt into a processor, and process to a paste.

Put into a bowl.

Add the soymilk, lime juice, parsley, and chives, and whisk until well blended.

Whisk in the vegan sour cream or vegan mayo.

Add salt and pepper to taste.

Use immediately, or put in a jar and refrigerate.
