Ranch dressing --- I hate you, but I miss you too

If you're like me, and at some point in your life stopped eating certain foods foods (due to health, dietary restrictions, or choice) know...those naughty foods that called your name in the night like a seductive edible, er...seductress...yeah...
Did someone say Ranch dressing? Yep - that was me, over in the corner, day dreaming about that horrible salad dressing/dip. So if Ranch still has you thinking longingly about it, heaving a big deep sigh, and cursing it's name all at the same time, well this post is for you.
Ranch Dippy!
1 c Cashews
1/4 c Apple Cider Vinegar
3 tsp Onion powder (maybe a pinch or two more)
1 tbsp Dried Chives
1 tsp dried Dillweed
1 tsp dried Parsley
3 tsp minced Dried Green Bell Pepper //or// 1/2 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Nutritional yeast (optional)
1 tsp Sea Salt
1 and 3/4 c Water (maybe a bit more after it's chilled, because it may thicken)
Process/Blend for 3 to 5 minutes, until very smooth
 Chill - and enjoy with just about anything!


Coming soon...

    Have you ever made a raw pumpkin pie? I'm thinking of making this one
    but I thought I'd ask around and see if anyone knew of a kick-ass raw pumpkin pie recipe. Our vegan club is having a vegan-pumpkin-pie off and I wanted to make something a little different.
