You can buy the Hidden Valley Ranch original buttermilk mix, which
is vegan (strangely enough).
I tried to make Ranch dip with it for the first time tonight, and
it turned out pretty good. I might continue to fool with the recipe,
but here is what I did tonight:
Process it all in a food processor.
- 1 package Mori Nu silken tofu
- 1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch buttermilk mix
- 1/2 cup vegenaise
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- garlic powder to taste (I didn't measure, but I think it was
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon)
- salt to taste
This turned out pretty good and tasted a lot like the old dressing
I remember from my pre-vegan days.
I think the mayo had a lot to do with it.
Be sure to get a vegan mayo that tastes really good (I think vegenaise
is the best I've ever had).
To make dressing, you could probably just do soy milk, vegan mayo,
and maybe a little lemon juice to get the bite of buttermilk.
I haven't tried that yet, though.
