Tofu scramble recipes like this spicy sandwich taste so delicious with this particular creamy sauce. This vegan ranch dressing recipe is super simple and plant based. It’s the best ranch dressing replacement I’ve ever tasted!

That’s because this vegan ranch dressing recipe is made with soaked cashews. Soaking cashews in water or almond milk turns them soft and blendable. Due to the fact that cashews are one of the most porous nuts they are often used as a vegan cheese replacement.

Cashews only take about 4 hours to absorb liquid and become mushy, unlike some other nuts like pistachios which can take 6-8 hours. Tofu scramble recipes are super tasty with a cashew based dipping sauce. It’s extremely healthy and plant based as well.

Plant based dishes like this are delicious and nutritious!

I always use cashews when making vegan ranch dressing recipes because they are rich in nutrition. Other ingredients for this sauce include vegan mayonnaise, almond milk, onion powder, and garlic powder.

Other ingredients include lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, dried dill, pried parsley, salt, and pepper. These flavors really accentuate tofu scramble recipes like this sandwich. That’s because the sandwich has a lot of salty and savory flavors as well.

Ingredients for my tofu scramble recipes always include extra firm tofu, olive oil, and chopped red onions. This one in particular also contain fresh cilantro, dried green onions, cayenne pepper, and chopped pickles. Also vegan mayonnaise, salt, pepper, turmeric, and of course, bread.

When making the vegan ranch recipe make sure to soak the cashews in almond milk for at least 4 hours. You can do what I do and soak them the night before so they are nice and soft before making the sauce. Next you need to drain the cashews and add them to the food processor.
