Vegan Ranch Dressing

Jump to Comments

When my oldest kids were very young, we had family friends that ate ranch dressing on everything. You know, like fries, and veggies, and potatoes, etc. So my kids started asking for it too. I just hated this idea and wanted them to develop the love for veggies without ranch dressing on them, or at least dip them in something healthy. When we moved away, we left that the ranch dressing behind us but every once in a while they have this memory and start asking for ranch dressing again. So I have been on a quest to find a good vegan recipe for something of the sort. I made this the other night and it got very good reviews.

Vegan Ranch Dressing

1 box (12.3 oz.) med. silken tofu, drained

3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

1/2 tsp celery seed

1/2 tsp coriander

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp dill

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

3/4 tsp salt

4 tbsp pure maple syrup or agave

2 1/2 tbsp grapeseed oil

After draining the tofu, put it in a food processor and puree til smooth. Add in all the other ingredients, scraping down the sides, process til smooth again. Check for flavor and tweak it if needed. Keep refrigerated and it lasts for a long time. Enjoy as a dip for anything!
