VEGAN RANCH SEASONING, DIP, DRESSING and VEGAN RANCH OYSTER CRACKER SNACK

VEGAN RANCH OYSTER CRACKER SNACK

VEGAN RANCH DRESSING SEASONING MIX
3 T. dried parsley
1 1/2 T. dried dill weed
2 T. onion powder
2 T. dried chives
1 1/2 t. salt
2 t. garlic powder
2 t. ground pepper

Stir all together for basic seasoning mix.  This can be used in the dip and dressing recipes as is, or you can put it in the food processor or coffee grinder to make a finer seasoning for cracker snacks.

VEGAN RANCH DIP
1/4 c. vegan mayo
1/4 c. vegan cream cheese
2 T.  ranch seasoning mix

Stir all together until creamy and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.

VEGAN LEMON DILL RANCH DIP
1/4 c. vegan mayo
1/4 c. vegan cream cheese
2 t. dried dill weed
1 T. ranch seasoning mix
1-2 t. fresh squeezed lemon juice

Stir all together until creamy and refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.

VEGAN RANCH DRESSING
3/4 c. vegan sour cream
2 T. unsweetened, unflavored soy or almond milk (or more to desired consistency)
1 1/2 T. ranch seasoning mix

Stir all together until creamy and smooth.  Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving.

VEGAN OYSTER CRACKER SNACKS
1 package oyster crackers
3 T. vegetable oil
2 T. ranch seasoning mix (that has been slightly processed so no large pieces of parsley and chives remain)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Toss crackers, oil and seasoning mix all together and lay out on a cookie sheet pan.  Bake for 5 minutes, stir once, then bake another 5 minutes.  Great as a snack or served on salads and soups.
