Vegan GF Ranch Dressing

My friend Michelle needed a dairy free option for Ranch Dressing for her daughter. I found 2 recipes. I have not tried these, so Michelle you have to let me know how they are. I will be trying them soon, cause I too like Ranch but can’t do the dairy very well.

EASY RANCH DIP:

Ingredients:

•  1/2 cup plain, unsweetened soymilk
•  1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
•  1 (15 oz) can white beans, rinsed & drained
•  1 teaspoon dried dill
•  1 teaspoon dried parsley
•  1/4 teaspoon dried tarragon
•  1/4 teaspoon onion powder
•  1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
•  Pinch of cayenne
•  1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
•  Freshly ground black or white pepper

Instructions:

1.  Combine the soymilk & lemon juice & set aside for 2 minutes (the mixture will curdle). Add the soy “buttermilk” to the beans in a blender & blend on high until completely smooth, about 2 minutes or more, scraping down the sides of the blender as needed.

2.  Spoon the mixture into a bowl & stir in the rest of the ingredients, seasoning with pepper to taste. Cover & chill for several hours in the fridge before serving.

Hope this helps Michelle!!
