Ranch Dressing Made with Hemp

Ranch Dressing Made With Hemp (shutterstock_195787595)Ranch dressing is a common favorite for tossing with greens or to use as a dip for veggies, but the dressing’s typically high saturated fat content will make most people begrudgingly reach for another option. By making your own ranch dressing, however, you’re in complete control its nutritional content and you can adjust the types and amounts of ingredients you use. You can choose to not use buttermilk, an ingredient found in most ranch dressings, which quickly jacks up the saturated fat levels. It also gives you the opportunity to mix in hemp seeds, which will pump up your dressing’s protein, fiber and essential fatty acid content. Hemp seeds are available to buy at most health and natural food stores. Not only will they increase your dressing’s natural benefits, they will help to make your dressing thicker and creamier so that the lack of buttermilk isn’t as noticeable.

This particular recipe will make you about a cup of ranch dressing, which will provide about six servings. You can make more, of course, and the leftovers will keep for about five days when stored in a jar in the refrigerator.

Ingredients:
½ cup hemp seeds
1/3 cup water
½ cup olive oil
6 tbsp lemon juice
1 ½ tbsp tahini (sesame seed paste)
½ teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon dill
½ teaspoon parsley
½ teaspoon garlic powder
½ teaspoon salt

Toss all ingredients into a small food processor or a blender and blend until the mixture’s consistency is smooth. The hemp seeds can cause the mixture to be a little thick. If you find that to be the case, add in a tablespoon of water at a time until you’ve got the consistency that you prefer. The dressing works best when it’s cooled in the fridge for a couple hours before serving, but is also ready to go if you need to use it immediately.
