Healthy Ranch Dressing recipe

By replacing this recipe for store bought Ranch Dressing you can eliminate refined soybean oil, sugar, phosphoric acid, xanthan gum, modified food starch, artificial flavor, disodium phosphate, sorbic acid and calcium disodium EDTA as preservatives.

One of the ingredients for this recipe is Vegenaise found at your local health food store. It is a healthy mayo alternative made from expeller-pressed grapeseed oil or safflower oil. Vegenaise is Vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free and non-gmo. I kid you not, it tastes great.

Here are two Vegenaise options:

Vegenaise Dressing

Grapeseed Vegeanise: (vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, non-gmo)

Ingredients:
Expeller-Pressed Grapeseed Oil, Filtered Water, Brown Rice Syrup, Apple Cider Vinegar, Soy Protein, Sea Salt, Mustard Flour, Lemon Juice Concentrate.
Ranch dressing never tasted so good.

I must admit that the Brown Rice Syrup and Soy Protein are not ideal ingredients but it’s a major upgrade from the bottled alternatives. Just compare ingredients! You may want to use this recipe with Vegenaise as a convenience as you transition your family towards eating more and more pure whole foods.

Soy-Free Vegenaise

 

 

Soy-Free Vegenaise: (vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, non-gmo, soy-free)

Ingredients:
Expeller-Pressed High-Oleic Safflower Oil, Filtered Water, Brown Rice Syrup, Apple Cider Vinegar, Pea Protein, Sea Salt, Mustard Flour, Lemon Juice Concentrate.

I started with the Grapeseed Oil Vegenaise but have since switched to the Soy-Free.

 

Another recipe using Vegenaise in is Karly’s Two Ingredient House Dressing.

Yield: 2½ cups
 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups Vegenaise (the grapeseed oil one with purple labeling- purchase at your health food store)
  • 4 teaspoons raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
  • 1 tsp garlic, granulated powder
  • 1 tsp onion, granulated powder
  • 2 teaspoon raw honey or 1 drop of stevia
  • 2 Tbsp fresh diced parsley or 2 tsp dried
  • 2 Tbsp fresh green onions, diced (only the green part) or 2 tsp dried chives
  • 2 Tbsp fresh dill or 2 tsp dried
  • 3-4 Tbsp of water or nut milk to thin it out to a dressing consistency.
Instructions
  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix together well with a spoon, fork or small whisk.
  2. Store in a glass jar with a lid and keep chilled until ready to use. It is best to make it at least an hour before using so the seasonings have time to meld nicely together.
