Vegan Hemp Seed Ranch
Ahhh, ranch. A timeless American staple.
Buttermilk, mayonnaise, sour cream, and 50% of your daily sodium allowance, what could go wrong?!
In all seriousness though, if we aspire as individuals to look and feel drastically different than the rest of America - than we have to start eating drastically different than most Americans.
Which is why I've made it my goal in life to help others find those classic nostalgic flavors from the foods they grew up loving - using ingredients that love them right back.
This creamy hemp-seed dip offers up all the Hidden Valley vibes with less calories, saturated fat and sodium - and more protein, fiber and omega-3 fatty acids too boot.
Hang onto your heart-strings, folks. You're going to love this one.
Prep time: 5 miN
Total time: 5 min
Makes: 4 servings
1/2 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
1/2 cup hemp hearts
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp dried dill weed
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp nutritional yeast
1/4 tsp smoked paprika
1 Tbsp lemon juice
pinch of salt and pepper
Mix all ingredients in a high-speed
blender such as a Vitamix or Nutribullet.
If your blender has a hard time breaking down the hemp hearts, try grinding them in a coffee grinder before blending.
Store in an airtight container for 3-5 days in the fridge, and enjoy with carrots, celery, chips, salad, or drizzled over your favorite crispy homemade flatbread.
