This week’s Whip It Up Wednesday is our Vegan Ranch Dressing. What is interesting is that we made this dressing back in December and thought we posted it waaaaay back then, but guess what? We didn’t as other recipes got shuffled around and somehow, it just never made it to the blog.
We were shocked because even though we have been using this version since December, we couldn’t believe we didn’t realize it wasn’t posted.
As you already know, every Wednesday, we feature a quick and easy recipe that can be “whipped up” in 20 minutes or less. This recipe can be made in about 5 minutes which really helps speed things up in the kitchen.
Our Vegan Ranch Dressing can be paired with so many other dishes. We have an awesome zucchini fritter recipe coming out in a few days and the combo will knock your socks off. Stay tuned!
Bottle vs Whole Food Plant Based
I adore Ranch Dressing, and in my previous life, I put it on everything from salads to pizza and everything in between. When we made this recipe back in December, we had decided to kitchen test it with a bottle of ranch dressing at the store to do a taste comparison. And boy were we on point!
“What is that taste?”
As we were doing our final kitchen test, I remember tasting a very tiny portion of my previous favorite store bought bottled ranch dressing, and I simply couldn’t believe how much my palate had changed.
I could actually taste the chemicals in the bottled ranch! The flavor tasted so “processed” and “chemical flavored” that I didn’t even like it. Which was surprising to me especially since I used to LOVE this brand of ranch dressing.
