Toss this vegan ranch dressing with greens or into a Buddha bowl, or serve it as a dip with crudites and other finger foods, such as our Crispy Buffalo Cauliflower Bites.

Note: Fresh herbs give the dressing authentic flavor, but you can certainly use dried herbs in their place. No silken tofu? You can substitute one 15-oz. can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained, plus ½ cup unsweetened, unflavored plant milk for the tofu.

Vegan Ranch Dressing


  • 1 12-oz. pkg. soft silken tofu (see headnote)
  • 3 Tbsp. unsweetened, unflavored plant-based milk, such as almond, soy, cashew, or rice
  • 2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1½ tsp. white wine vinegar
  • 1½ tsp. garlic powder
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tsp. chopped fresh parsley or ½ tsp. dried parsley
  • 2 tsp. chopped fresh dill or ½ tsp. dried dill weed
  • 2 tsp. chopped fresh chives or ½ tsp. dried chives


  1. In a blender combine the first five ingredients (through garlic powder) and season with salt and pepper. Cover and blend until creamy and smooth. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in parsley, dill, and chives. Adjust seasoning. Chill before serving. Thin with additional milk if needed.
  2. Keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 4 days.
