Vegan Ranch Dip with Crudités

There are a few foods that have been elusive for me to capture in vegan recipes. Brownies, angel food cake, and ranch dressing are a few examples of these. I am not happy until the flavors and textures are reminiscent of what I remember. This ranch dip did that for me. It took a lot of tweaking, but I have my favorite vegan ranch flavor captured here.

I often serve a platter with cut fresh vegetables when we have get togethers, as people like to snack on them. They will fill up your guests without making them feel gross... you know how it is when you go to a potluck and try too many rich things right? This is the antidote :)

Vegan Ranch Dip with Crudités 


1 cup vegan mayo (I loves me some Vegenaise!)
Vegan Ranch Dip with Fresh Summer Vegetables
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp dill
1/2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp parsley
1/4 tsp vegan worchestershire sauce
dash of red vinegar
salt and pepper to taste


Mix all the ingredients together and let the dip chill for a couple of hours to let the flavors develop and combine.

I love this time of year when my vegetable garden is producing delicious food. The carrots, squash,
sugar snap peas, and tomatoes were grown in my front yard :) love. that.

Vegenaise is 90 calories per tablespoon, so I base my calorie intake off of that; assuming the herbs don't add much in the way of calories.


  1. I've been looking for a recipe for dip. This looks like it is so flavorful! Can't wait to try!
