Description

A delicious recipe for Creamy Vegan Ranch Dressing that can be made without oil!  Low calorie & made with silken tofu. Dairy-free, Nut-free, Gluten-Free and ZERO Cholesterol! Perfect for salads, wraps, bowls or as a veggie dip!


Ingredients

  • 1 package silken tofu ( 12.3 ounces) firm
  • 2  tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil ( or sub with 2 T water — or use 1 T water and 1 T oil– for lower calories)
  • 2 fat garlic cloves
  • 1 rounded teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon crushed peppercorns ( or stir these in at the end)
  • 1 ½  tablespoons apple cider or sherry vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast (optional)
  • 12 tablespoon fresh oregano, dill or parsley or use 1 teaspoon dry

Instructions

Place everything in a blender and blend until very smooth, scraping down sides as necessary.

Store in the fridge in a jar, keeps for 10 days.


Notes

To make this even lower-calorie, or totally oil-free,  you could leave out the oil completely or use 1 tablespoon less.

To make this taste richer, add more olive oil!
