Ranch Bake

Finally recovering from mofo and thanksgiving.....I wanted to share what I made for dinner tonight!

I found this recipe on VegWeb:

The recipe has a lot of prepackaged stuff in it, but I made my own ranch and seitan so it wasn't expensive to make at all! I did make a few changes (of course). I didn't presoak the bacon bits, I subbed about 3/4 cup homemade seitan for the lightlife chick'n and I omitted the vegan cheese. I just added a little more ranch sauce.

Here it is right out of the oven:

Hit the spot on a chilly rainy day....

The ranch sauce is something I modified from an older recipe. It's not a perfect substitute, but it works for me and it's mostly easy pantry ingredients. I can't remember where it came from. Here's my (approximate) measurements.

Vegan Ranch
1 TBSP vinegar (apple cider or red wine)
1/2 cup non-dairy milk
1/3 cup vegan mayo
1 TSP onion powder
1/2 TSP garlic
1/2 TSP dill
1/4 TSP black pepper
1/2 TSP thyme
2 TSP nutritional yeast

Blend until well-mixed.

One thing I liked about this ranch bake recipe was the dough! I can see it coming in handy for making all kinds of wrapped-and-baked stuff. It's quick and easy to make, and tastes great. MMMM!


  1. Looks GOOD! I'm gonna go check out that recipe now...

  3. Hm...blogger does not seem to be wanting to do my bidding...I put the url underneat for copying and pasting,sorry!

    Your effort will be rewarded, these are so tasty!

  4. Wow...I want to be rewarded too ;) I haven't had Ranch dressing in years. I'm gonna whip that up soon. Yum.

  5. Ooh, yum! Thanks for sharing your ranch dressing recipe!
