*This recipe is for those who need whole30 and egg free. If you are not doing an egg free whole30, i recommend my original ranch dressing recipe, which can be made whole30 or egg free, but not both.

 

After about 1 1/2 weeks into my Whole30 I wasn’t feeling much better so I started reading the book again and saw that if you have any kind of auto-immune issues it might be helpful to cut out eggs. So I took the plunge and decided to cut out eggs for the remainder of my whole30, not thinking it would be all that hard since I can have sausage and ham with my breakfast smoothie in the mornings and you can’t eat baked goods anyways. But wait…. aren’t there eggs in mayo, which I use every single week for the ranch dip during Wednesday Wing Night? – NNOOO!

There was no way I wasn’t going to have ranch dip during Wednesday Wing Night! So I found an egg free mayo recipe in the Whole30 book (mayo is the main ingredient in ranch dip which is typically made using eggs and oil) but it didn’t translate well to ranch dressing – it had a bit of a gritty texture and WAY too much coconut taste! It did however start me on the right track of coming up with the recipe below. I’ve been eating on it all week and can honestly say I don’t even miss the other dressing, the egg free version tastes just tastes like our regular ranch.

I used coconut cream as the base to give it a nice creamy texture and added olive oil to play down the coconut taste and give it a more authentic flavor which worked great! Then I added the ranch seasonings and voila – perfect egg free ranch, I’m SO excited! Now us egg-free people can have our cake and eat it too, or in this case – ranch dressing! I hope you love it as much as I do, it’s amazing πŸ™‚

Egg Free Ranch Dressing or Dip {Whole30, Paleo, Dairy & Soy Free}

*For coconut cream, place full fat canned coconut milk in the fridge for up to 24 hours, then scoop out the coagulated cream. I recommend the Sprouts brand or Thai Kitchen because some have a funny aftertaste. **It is important to use extra light tasting olive oil. If you use virgin olive oil your ranch will have a bitter aftertaste. Even some extra light olive oils though, can have a strong taste. I recommend using Filippo Berio Extra Light Tasting Olive Oil because of it's extra mild taste.

Ingredients

  • Coconut Cream from 1 Can of Full-Fat Coconut Milk approximately 1 Cup*, room temperature
  • 1/ 2 C Extra Light Olive Oil Filippo Berio brand**
  • 2 tsp. Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp. Distilled White Vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp. Dried Mustard Powder
  • 1 tsp. Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Onion Powder
  • 1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1/4 tsp. Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. Dill
  • 2 Tbsp. Dried Parsley
  • Dash of Paprika
  • Filtered Water as needed to thin

Instructions

  • Make sure all your ingredients are room temperature.
  • Place all ingredients except the olive oil in the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth. Very slowly, add the olive oil while running the food processor on high so it emulsifies and doesn't separate. If mixture looks like it separating, just keep processing on high and slowly adding the oil until it all comes together.
  • Taste and adjust seasonings as needed.

Note-Texture slightly changes and thickens in fridge. If using as a dressing, thin before placing in fridge as it's hard to thin out once it has been refrigerated.

      • Hi Tammy! The serving size is 1/4 of the recipe, but I’d have to make it again and measure it out to know for sure. I would guess it would be closer to 3 or 4 Tbsp. though, because if I remember correctly, the recipe makes around 1 cup. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help!!!

      This is amazing. I made this for some friends who are egg and dairy intolerant, and wow! Very tasty! Only changes I made: 1/2 clove fresh garlic instead of the garlic powder, omitted dill and chive because we don’t have any on hand. So good! Thank you for coming up with this!

      Could you leave out the onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, dill and paprika and have a “plain mayo”? I was going to use this over the best chicken salad.

      • Hi Karen B! You probably could, but I’ve never tried it so I’m not sure if it would have that classic mayo taste. If you try it, let me know how it turns out!!!

        P.S. If you’re not egg free I have a good whole30 mayo recipe HERE πŸ™‚
