The fifth recipe in our Epic Vegan series is Blue Cheese Dressing. I’ll admit I was a little skeptical when I glanced at the ingredients list. How was this going to give a blue cheese dressing vibe? But it really does. As I say with all vegan versions of classics, if the expectation isn’t that it tastes exactly like the dairy version and just has has a way of satisfying in a similar way, it’s much more likely to be appreciated. And I appreciate this recipe. So good on salads and sandwiches!

Blue Cheese Dressing

recipe

FROM EPIC VEGAN BY DUSTIN HARDER

vegan | quick | easy | gluten-free | 10 ingredients or less | 15 minutes or less | year-round

PREP TIME: 15 MINUTES | TOTAL TIME: 15 MINUTES

Yield: 1 cup (260 g)

Author’s note: In my last book, The Simply Vegan Cookbook, I went about the task of recreating my all-time favorite, nostalgia-laden dressing: RANCH. For this book, I wanted to offer up its slightly more robust and tangier cousin, Blue Cheese. This dressing complements so many items, and it’s nice to have an easy, go-to recipe for it on hand.

Tip: If desired, add ¼ cup (56 g) crumbled extra-firm tofu for texture.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Add the mayonnaise, tahini, miso, water, lemon juice, mustard, vinegar, and garlic powder to a high-speed blender. Blend until smooth.

  2. Add the parsley and black pepper, and pulse a few times until just combined and specks of the parsley and pepper are still visible.

  3. Store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
