Easy and delicious! Submitted by S. Ann Andrews.
This ranch dressing uses silken tofu instead of mayo for a low-fat version that will add creaminess to any salad.
1 12.3 ounce package firm lite silken tofu
1/3 cup water…
1 cup vegan mayonnaise
1/2 tsp. garlic powder…
1 red bell pepper
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar…

1 cup distilled water…
It’s yummy! Trust me….

2 tsp cornstarch…
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp. frozen apple juice concentrate…

- Aqua Fava Carob Pieces (Vegan, Gluten and Oil Free)Though I’ve gotten a lot less fussy (or maybe lazy) in my cooking habits, from time to time I still can’t resist my proclivity for vegan adaptations of things I know I should never eat in their original form. This experiment is that a couple times over, since most of you can eat a few […]
