December 12, 2020   |   

Fabulous! 🙂 Not sure if you checked back but I replied to you comment about miso (I usually find it in the refrigerated sections of Whole foods – by the tofu and things like that). Every can of Native Forest has half a can full of cream, other brands I’ve used had far less, I don’t want to end up muting the flavors by accident. I’m the only one in the family who will be eating it so I want to make sure I don’t keep it longer than I should. Dried herbs are much more potent so you’ll likely need just a fraction (perhaps up to 1/2) of the amount. Right, pepper is not AIP as it is super inflammatory (even mainstream doctors acknowledge that it can irritate arthritis). What finally nudged me into making a healthy copycat recipe, though, was making these cute and fun veggie dip jars. I once made vegan mac n’ cheese with unsweetened vanilla almond milk because that’s all I had on hand, and it did NOT go well. Ok I’m not the kind of person who normally loves Ranch dressing. Hi Debbie, glad this post came at the right time! But for a new mom who’s missing dairy, they might be just the thing! Has anyone tried this with dried herbs? Hi, Aly! Tried this recipe twice, but unfortunately it didn’t work for me either time. I hope this helps! If the cashews are even a little rancid, the dressing will have an off flavor.

Hi Barbara, I feel your pain! If you read through the comments, you'll find others' recommended brands and tips for problem-solving, but usually you'll be safe if you use canned coconut milk that contains nothing but coconut and filtered water (no added gums or stabilizers). 1 unbaked Gluten-Free Vegan Pie Crust (oil-free) Or your favorite pie crust recipe. I initially used it for dipping buffalo cauliflower wings in & it really helped bring them over the top. So glad you enjoyed it! As for the blue cheese, I created a bit of a blue cheese sauce for this burger (https://www.blissfulbasil.com/2014/05/21/juicy-portobello-burgers-with-vegan-blue-cheese-caramelized-onions/); however, it’s more about the tang and less about the funkiness of blue cheese (if that even makes sense). Hi Melanie, if you try it with white beans please let me know how it goes! Great tip about the coconut milk water and room temperature coconut milk fat. lol! It makes me feel like a mad scientist in the kitchen! I read through the comments and didn’t see anyone else mention that one can wasn’t enough. These are absolutely heavenly served warm but still pretty darn good at room temperature. My first batch was done in a Blendtec blender ( thought that was the issue), and it REALLY separated- so I collected it in paper towels and drained it- got some pretty awesome herbed “butter” that was used on grilled asparagus and also used to deglaze a pan we used to cook steaks on! Any other brand suggestions for the Almond Milk? Raw cashews currently soaking overnight in unsweetened, unflavored Silk Almond milk! My husband is allergic to nuts.

The perfect dairy-free dressing for salads, vegetables, & more! I do believe it’s the guar gum and other stabilizers that are causing the issues. It curdles and becomes chunky when anything is added.

This is hands down the closest thing I’ve had to veganized hidden valley. 1/4 cup (60g) canned "lite" coconut milk, shaken first (or soy milk, but I preferred the taste of the coconut) 1 1/2 tablespoons (23g) white distilled vinegar 1 teaspoon onion powder Just wondering if you could use something else beside coconut cream/milk. Hope this helps and enjoy! Some readers have mentioned having good luck with Native Forest, while others have had issues with it. Hope you’re able to find an additive-free coconut milk soon, but great to know that you were able to make it work despite that pesky guar gum. Thank you for doing the legwork on this. Specifically, Litehouse Freeze Dried Herbs, much better than the regular dried herbs. Also, what is up with the canned coconut milk? More vegan salad dressings!

This vegan coconut milk ranch dressing will make you forget all about the “real” thing. Adapted from. On a side note, we bought some organic coconut milk by Native Forest and for the first time these cans are also giving us grief and curdling! Wondering if this recipe would work as a coleslaw dressing? I must say I was surprised at the flavor. Now I don’t want to dislocate a shoulder patting myself on the back or anything, but with inspiration from The Vegan 8 and Top Secret Recipes, I came up with a vegan copycat of Hidden Valley Ranch that’s a dead ringer for the original—no MSG required.
