Avocado Ranch Dressing
This is the first of my little mini series on dressings. In fact, over the next week I’ll be posting three dressings recipes and I feel strongly that these are the ONLY three dressings you will EVER NEED as a vegan.
This one, for all you fancy pants, is completely oil free. I made the recipe up after crafting a huge elaborate salad, only to find the kitchen was empty of oil AND veganaise! What’s a gorl to do?? Avocado did the job PERFECKLY!
The dressing is creamy, zingy and herby fresh! Throw in a tablespoon of chopped capers and it doubles as a pretty banging avocado Caesar dressing. If you’re not a fan of raw garlic, try a teaspoon of garlic granules.
Makes about 200ml dressing.
1 v ripe avocado
1 tbsp dill (roughly chopped)
1 tbsp parsley (roughly chopped)
1 tbsp chives (roughly chopped)
1/4 tsp salt
Pinch black pepper
1 small clove garlic (minced)
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
3 tbsp vegan yogurt
3 tbsp water (or soy milk if you’re nasty)
In a small bowl, combine the garlic, salt and the apple cider vinegar. Set aside for ten minutes.
Combine all remaining ingredients in a food processor or a nutribullet and blend until smooth.
Add the garlic mixture to the other ingredients and blend until smooth.
