Dairy Free Blue Cheese Dressing

Dairy free blue cheese dressing is rich and decadent. I can’t say that it would pass in a blind taste test, but after fine-tuning this recipe with multiple trials, I don’t think it matters. 

In many of my recipes, tahini can be substituted for hulled raw sesame seeds. Because that’s what tahini is, and if you have a high quality blender, there is no difference, except that expensive store bought varieties often contain added oils that aren’t necessary. If your pallet is super sophisticated, roast the seeds first until they are golden brown. This can be done in a sauce pan over medium heat. Stir frequently as they burn fast.

Dairy Free Blue Cheese Dressing

½ cup firm tofu (can substitute canned white beans)

¼ cup raw cashews, soaked and drained

1/2 cup vegan mayonnaise

2 Tbsp. tahini (or hulled raw sesame seeds, toasted if desired)

½ Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce

1 Tbsp. lemon juice

1 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar

1 Tbsp. nutritional yeast flakes

1 tsp. garlic powder

½ tsp. mustard powder

½ tsp. onion powder

½ tsp. garlic salt

 

Mix ingredients in the food processor until super creamy. If you want chunks in your dressing, reserve half of the tofu (or beans), yeast flakes and garlic salt. Mash with a fork. Sprinkle with the yeast flakes and garlic salt. Add the chunks to the creamy mixture.

Serve with buffalo cauliflower or however you chose.
