The very Best Vegan Ranch Dressing that is oil-free, has a nut-free option, soy-free and gluten-free! Just 8 easy ingredients.
I've had several people ask me to come up with a ranch dressing recipe. Well, today is your lucky day....and guess what, it is oil-free, soy-free AND nut-free! I think most vegan recipes contain soy and/or nuts and I know a lot of people avoid or can't have those, so I wanted to come up with a version that didn't use either.
Best Vegan Ranch Dressing That Is Oil-free
Most dressing bases are ridiculously high in oil, which is not healthy, no matter what oil it is. The calorie content is sky high and oil is nothing more than straight liquid fat. 1 tablespoon is 14 g of fat and most recipes call for 1/2 cup or more. I like my dressing bases to contain fats/calories from whole foods like nuts or seeds, so my body is processing the whole food, and not just absorbing straight oil. Both my husband and I feel so much better by cutting out excessive oils. It works for us.
Sunflower kernels to the rescue. Or cashews if you don't need it nut-free.
Best Vegan Ranch Dressing
This is delicious as a dressing or dipping veggies in, but it is awesome as a potato salad. The consistency of the dressing is perfect for a potato salad. How exciting that this Vegan Ranch Dressing is oil-free, nut-free (if using sunflower kernels), soy-free, gluten-free and raw. Most anybody should be able to have this!
However, if you are more a Caesar Dressing fan, make sure to try this reader favorite, my Vegan Caesar Dressing!
This is delicious and will fool anybody...don't even tell them it isn't "real" ranch. It is SO good.
