  • Garlic powder — Or you can use the tender cloves from a garlic confit.
  • Fresh parsley — If you don’t have fresh, substitute dried parsley.
  • Dried dill
  • Nutritional yeast flakes — I love using nutritional yeast flakes for the cheesy flavor it adds to my recipes. Here’s more on nutritional yeast flakes, including where to buy it
  • Salt & Pepper — Add a bit of salt and ground black pepper to taste.

What Vegan Yogurt is Best?

Vegan yogurt is made from various plant-based milks, such as soy milk, cashew milk, coconut milk, oat milk, and almond milk. Many of today’s vegan yogurts are creamy, delicious, and come with a probiotic bacteria benefit. For a savory dip, you’ll want to find plain yogurt (unsweetened and unflavored), such as Forager’s Plain Cashew Yogurt. You can also substitute vegan sour cream or cashew cream. You can find a variety of vegan yogurts and vegan sour cream at many stores these days, such as Target, Walmart, many grocery store chains, and more!

How to Make Vegan Ranch Dip

  1. Pour the yogurt into a bowl.
  2. Stir in the minced green onions and seasonings.
  3. Allow the dip to sit for 5 to 10 minutes for the flavors to blend together.

Marly’s Tips

You can add a drizzle of agave nectar or maple syrup if you want a bit of a sweet touch, just don’t add too much!

Do Vegans Eat Ranch?

Ranch is the number one flavor in American kitchens, but because it’s usually made with cow dairy products, it’s not vegan. However, it’s easy to make your own dairy-free ranch and there are even brands that sell it these days too.

    I added more nooch, dill, salt and put in a bit of onion powder, was improved! It’s a great dip, but I feel like it’s missing something, I’m going to try the vinegar! Thanks!

    I’m not vegan, but have recently developed an allergy to milk protein, and this recipe has absolutely fixed my craving for carrots and ranch dip! The suggestion to add white vinegar made it perfect. I too make my own soy yogurt and before I added the vinegar it tasted a little too “soy”. Great recipe! Thank you for posting

    How long do you think it lasts in an airtight Container in the refrigerator ?

    • Avatar thumbnail image for MarlyMarly

      Hi Brynn. It should last 3 – 5 days in an airtight container in the fridge. You can add a little apple cider vinegar or even unsweetened almond milk to use it as a dressing on salads. It’s a favorite summertime salad dressing or dip for veggies!

    I’ve made this a few times now and it’s so good!!! It doesn’t last very long between my mother and I. We add about 3/4 tsp of white vinegar to make it a little tangier, but I’m also using homemade soy yogurt so perhaps if I was using the Silk that wouldn’t be necessary. Love love love.

      Michele! Thank you! Also, you are my hero because I have “making my own homemade soy yogurt” on my to do list! It’s gonna happen! Also, I love your idea of adding apple cider vinegar for some tang! I use this dip for veggies, but also for salads too!
