    Ranch Dressing {egg-free & dairy-free}

     

    A few weeks ago I cut out dairy in an effort to get rid of intermittent migraines. And it worked. I think I was eating too much aged cheese and chocolate. The great thing was it gave me the chance to dig into some healthy dairy-free options, like this ranch dressing recipe.

     

    Ranch Dressing {egg-free & dairy-free}

     

    I usually make my ranch dressing from my SCD cookbook, using mayonnaise and yogurt (or coconut milk), but I switched to this dairy-free, egg-free ranch dressing made with cashews.

    The trick to preparing cashews for dairy-free recipes is to soak them in water for a few hours. After soaking, rinse and pulse them in a high speed blender or food processor with water or other liquid. Blend or process the cashews until you have a creamy consistency.

    If you want to speed up the soaking process, you can soak the cashews in a bowl of hot water for about 20 minutes.

    That’s it!

      Is there a nut that works if your are low FODMAP? Cashews aren’t allowed.

        Cashews are the only nut that gets this consistency and taste of dairy (that I know of). You can substitute dairy-free yogurt and mayonnaise (about half and half) which is the recipe in my SCD cookbook. Or use a combination of mayonnaise and and dairy-free milk. Mayonnaise isn’t usually egg-free though.

      Is there another recipe you might have that does not use nuts?
      My daughter can’t have them. Thank you.
