Creamy Dairy-Free, Egg-free Ranch Salad Dressing

Lately I’ve been craving creamy ranch salad dressing. Of course, it had to be healthy, gluten-free, and dairy-free. Then I was peering into my fridge the other day, trying to decide what to eat, when I saw left-over cooked white beans… see where I’m going with this? :-) Haha! I know I’m getting predictable with the bean recipes here, but this dressing is so creamy and awesome! I’ve already made it three times now, and I’m no where near being tired of it! Let me know if you try it!

Creamy Dairy-Free, Egg-free Ranch Salad Dressing

Add to blender:
1/2 cup cooked white beans
1/4 cup almond or cashew milk
1 tbsp Vegenaise Grapeseed Oil
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1/8 tsp guar gum OR 2 tsp Chia Seed
1/4 tsp Herbamare seasoning
1/4 tsp dried dill
1/8 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp garlic powder
Blend till smooth and creamy.
I also added Hemp Seeds, raisins and walnuts to the salad in this picture. Yum!

    Thanks Kris! I got Bob’s Red Mill: Small White Beans. But I’m going to try it with Great Northern today, and I’ll let you know if there’s any difference.

    Kelly,

    This sounds great. I always make my own dressing, but have never made a ranch style before. Hmmm? I’m not sure why. This recipe of yours motivates me to give it a shot. I’ve never used herbamare, but am getting into growing and harvesting my own herbs, so I’ll check out what the mix is and try my own version.

    Thanks for the inspiration!

    Kelly – this looks great! I had never thought to use white beans for a dressing before. I make a ranch dressing using raw cashews and a few other ingredients. I am planning on posting it within the next few weeks. Looking forward to trying yours out as well! :)

    Thanks Melissa! I look forward to seeing what herbs you use from the garden!

    Thanks Ali! I will try yours also!

    Thanks Mrs. P! I think your going to love it!

    PS to all: I made this dressing with cooked Great Northern beans yesterday and it was exactly the same and so yummy! The store didn’t have the Bob’s Red Mill dry beans, so I got dry Great Northern and soaked them overnight, rinsed and cooked them in the morning. Then I made a stuffed pepper dish for dinner using the dressing -I will be posting it very soon ;-)

    Hannihaus,

    Oh my gosh -you’re right -soy protein is the 5th ingredient in Vegenaise Grapeseed Oil. I will correct the post. Thank you!

    My mom and I have looked up several things on google, because we are new to this whole thing(: You totally helped us out with this ranch dressing! Thanks!

    Soy protein is used as an emulsifier in place of eggs. It is used in very small amounts (note there is 0g of protein) and comprises less than 0.25g per serving and less than 2% of the total volume of the product.
    We’ve found that the amount of soy in Vegenaise is so small that even some people with sensitivities to soy can enjoy Vegenaise. To be safe, people with sensitivity to soy should consult their physician regarding the advisability of testing this product.
    Although the amount of soy protein in Vegenaise is quite small, there are some that cannot or chose not to consume any soy in their diets, so we are in the process of developing a soy-free Vegenaise recipe.

    I love the idea of making ranch dressing, instead of buying name brands, but I’m trying to stay away from Grapeseed oil at the same time, it really makes it tough, it seems there is always some new ingredient to avoid!
