You are going to love how easy it is to make vegan ranch dressing or dip at home once you have this Vegan Dry Ranch Seasoning Mix on hand!
I don't know about you, but in my pre-vegan days I LOVED making ranch dressing from those dry seasoning packets at the grocery store. I know it is filled with preservatives (and obviously dairy), but it just tastes so freaking good.
BUT the time has come, and I have finally figured out the perfect recipe for making a VEGAN version of this dry seasoning mix at home.
Imagine being able to make ranch in a snap by combining a spoonful of this seasoning mix with non-dairy milk, a splash of apple cider vinegar and vegan mayo. Literally life changing!
How To Make Vegan Dry Ranch Seasoning Mix
Grab all of the traditional ranch dry seasonings - onion powder, onion flakes, garlic powder, dill, chives, parsley, salt and pepper.
Figuring out the seasoning combo was the easy part, but the base of those traditional packets is powdered milk. That's where SOY powdered milk comes into play. I didn't even know this stuff existed, but it does and you can get it on amazon. You can check out the one I got here.
Combine everything together in a blender or food processor and pulse it a couple of times. Transfer the mixture to a container and you officially have ranch seasoning on hand and ready to go.
Vegan Dry Ranch Seasoning Mix
- ⅓ cup soy powdered milk*
- 2 tablespoon dried parsley
- 2 teaspoon dried chives
- 2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon onion flakes
- 1 teaspoon dried dill
- 1 teaspoon pepper
- 1 teaspoon salt
- Combine all of the ingredients in a food processor or blender.
- Pulse a couple of times until combined.
- Transfer the mixture to an airtight container and store in the fridge** for up to 3 months.

Made this recipe using powdered oat milk, it came out perfect! Thank you for sharing this recipe!
I’m not vegan but a friend is lactose intolerant.
We love IP Crack Chicken and I wanted to make it dairy free for her. It tasted amazing!!! Even better than store-bought HVR seasoning packet
The use of powdered soy milk makes this recipe work. I tried others with just spices or with nutritional yeast and they didn't taste right. This one is brilliant!
Can I use the pulp from homemade cashew milk as the powder?
Oh my God! This is sooooo much better than regular ranch dressing. I'm not vegan but my daughter recently converted to vegan and she really likes my Ranch coated saltine crackers. So I followed this recipe so she could still have her favorite snack and I can't believe how much better they tasted! Thank you so much for this recipe!
That's awesome - I love the idea of using this on crackers!
Amazon is out of the organic soy powdered milk so I'm going to order the powdered coconut milk. The spices should overide the slight coconut taste. Maybe I'll find it adds a subtle pleasing nutty depth to it. Or maybe I'm a bit cocoNuts to try but I love experimenting.
Bahahah - I love puns. Let me know how it turns out!
Hi! Any luck with the powered coconut substitute?
Hmmm.. i see non feedback on if the coconut milk powder worked.. i think i have powdered rice milk.... i will try this.. we are soy free, so i hope it works. Lol Also, any idea of how much to use if using as a sub for a packet of ranch mix in a recipe?
Thanks in advance. 🙂
The rice milk should work well - and see the recipe notes for dip and dressing measurements 🤗

Awesome, I will give it a try =D
Excellent Ranch Seasoning, even better than store bought. I've made both the dressing and dip. I will keep this dry mix with my spices as a pantry staple. Finally a vegan substitute for Ranch I'm proud to serve to non-vegans
Hi I will love to make it
I have the Ingredients but fresh chives instead.
Can I use coconut cream powdered ?
I haven't tried it with coconut cream, so I don't know if it would have the same flavor profile. And fresh chives will work, it just won't have as long of a shelf life 🙂
This dry ranch mix (and the recipes for using it to make dressing and dip) is amazing! I’ve been looking for something like this and have always been disappointed by other recipes. Not this time. Trust me, you need this in your life!
Woo! So glad you like it! I love having it on hand for a quick dressing.
