Easy Vegan Ranch Dressing

Ranch dressing is great for salads and dipping vegetables. Store bought ranch dressing and dips are loaded with fats and preservatives and are definitely not vegan. Here’s a great recipe that’s super quick and easy to whip up!


vegan mayo (I use vegenaise)

italian spices

vegan milk (soy, almond, rice, etc)

salt and pepper, to taste


Start off with adding some mayo into a bowl (it will be the main base of the dressing). Add some milk, how much you use depends on how thick you want your ranch. If you want it like a dip, just add a little bit but if you want it for a dressing on salads add more. Use a fork to blend the mayo and milk. Add more milk or mayo to get desired¬†consistency. ¬†Then go crazy with spices. I use the Italian grinders you can find which have rosemary, oregano and basil. You can also use fresh herbs or whichever dry herbs you enjoy the most. The fresh herbs won’t keep as long so keep that in mind. Add salt and pepper to taste and you’re done!


This dip would also be a good dip for the fried okra recipe that I just posted!


Bento 40

I started classes again, and I’m not sure how it’s going to go bento-wise. I have huge breaks in my class so I’m not sure whether I’ll be able to make a lot of bentos. But tomorrow I’m going to go work out and I have to run some errands so I thought I’d make a bento for a quick lunch.

I made some Haluski for dinner so I added the leftovers of that, a croissant, some baby carrots, some salad and light italian dressing, and to finish it off some nectarine.
