Curry Ranch Dressing - a vegan raw recipe
Cashew cream makes a luscious creamy base for ranch style dressings and sour cream style sauces. Here I combined traditional ranch flavors with a kiss of curry. We enjoyed it on crisp herbal salad greens, and as a dip for fresh carrot sticks.
1 cup soaked raw cashews
1/2 cup fresh filtered water
1 tablespoon fresh lemon or lime juice
1/2 to 1 teaspoon mild gluten-free curry powder, to taste
1/4 teaspoon organic garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon organic onion powder
Pinch of sea salt, to taste
Black pepper, to taste1 teaspoon fresh minced dill
2 teaspoons fresh minced parsley
2 teaspoons fresh minced basil leaves
Combine the soaked cashews, water, lemon juice, curry, garlic and onion powder in a Vita-Mix or blender and blend until smooth and creamy. If the sauce is too thick, add a tablespoon of filtered water to thin; pulse. Add another tablespoon, as needed.
Season with sea salt and black pepper, to taste.
Add the fresh chopped herbs. Pulse briefly to combine. Don't over do it.
Taste test! Adjust seasonings to your liking. Store in a covered glass jar or storage container. The flavors get better as it chills.
Use as a salad dressing or as a dip for carrot, celery, and zucchini sticks, and broccoli florets.
Makes four servings
