Ranch Seasoning Ingredients

You can find the full printable recipe, including ingredient quantities, below. But first, here are some explanations of ingredients and steps to help you make this recipe perfect every time.

  • Nooch — Adding nutritional yeast flakes (aka, nooch), gives this seasoning a cheesy flavor we all love.
  • Flour — We’ll add almond flour to include some healthy fats.
  • Seasoning — Be prepared to add garlic powder, onion powder (or dehydrated onions), dried dill, dried parsley, salt, and mustard powder.
  • Milk — Ranch is a milk-based dressing, so it goes without saying that adding some soy milk powder makes this the best plant-based substitute. Do you HAVE to add soy milk powder? Nope, but I highly recommend it. It adds a bit of tang you can’t easily replicate. You could experiment with adding a pinch of vinegar powder.

How to Make Vegan Ranch Seasoning
