Dairy Free Ranch Dressing

After going dairy-free I struggled to find a good alternative to my favorite salad dressing, RANCH.  Is  there really any other kind?  Then I discovered tofu.  At first I was hesitant to even try it, after all it is fermented soy beans, and it sounded less than appetizing.  But, much to my suprise, tofu has become a very versatile staple in my kitchen.  It can be add to different recipes, especially the silken kind and blended into a smooth yogurt-like consistency that you can do all kinds of things with.

I use Mori-Nu Tofu from my local health food store for recipes like this.  Tofu is REALLY inexpensive and usually organic and non-gmo.  It is priced about $2.80 for a 12 oz. block in my area.  I like this brand because it is also SHELF-STABLE, making it a great addition to my pantry because, it doesn't require refrigeration.  This type of tofu is good for making all kinds of dishes, but if you want to use it as a scrambled egg replacement I recommend getting a firmer tofu in your grocery store's fruit and vegetable section.

Serve this dressing with fresh veggies as a delicious dip or over your favorite tossed salad or to dunk your favorite chicken nuggets or baked french fries in.  I mean is there really anything better than chicken nuggets or french fries dipped in ranch dressing?  Or than a baked potato topped with ranch dressing?  I think not!

Dairy Free Ranch Dressing
6 oz. Silken Soft Tofu
1 tsp. dried parsley
1/4 tsp. garlic powder and onion powder
1 tbsp. almond milk (or other plant-based milk)

To make this super simple dairy-free ranch dressing blend the following ingredients in a food processor or blender.  This make a small amount, about one cup, but it can be easily doubled.
