Dry Ranch mix – dairy-free, vegan

bowl full of dry mix

Ranch. Is. The. Answer

Well, in our house ranch and ketchup are both the answer. But lately, I have been wanting all things ranch. Cue the Dry Ranch Mix. I like to make my own so I can control the ingredients. Most premade mixes you can buy have either milk or sugar added to them. They also cost a bit more. But since I know I am going to use it several times I take just a few minutes and whip together enough to last me at least a month.

I played with different variations and amounts of herbs and spices for quite a while before I landed on this mix that I am in LOVE with. And I am going to tell you a little secret. If you are short on time and don’t have the Dry Ranch Mix already prepared, use equal amounts of onion and garlic powder and two parts parsley. Salt and pepper to taste and you are good to go.

But if you want something more complex and have the time, this mix is where it is at! Make a big batch and it will be ready for the next time you need it.

This recipe is versatile. As long as you have onion and garlic powder as the base you can play with whatever dried or fresh herbs you are in the mood for.
