Veggie trays are a staple at our house in the summer! They are light and easy not to mention fast. This is our go-to recipe for ranch dip. It tastes great as salad dressing too!
Easy Peasy Ranch Dip
- 2 cups sour cream
- ¼ – ½ cup of buttermilk
- 2 Tbs. dried onion
- ¼ tsp. garlic powder
- ½ tsp. onion powder
- 3 Tbs. dried dill
- 1 tsp. sugar
- 1 tsp. salt or seasoning salt (we use Real Salt)
- 1/8 tsp. black pepper
- cayenne pepper to taste
Whisk all ingredients together. If you want it thick like a dip add less buttermilk. If you want it more thin like a dressing add more. The longer the dip sits the more the flavors mesh and the better it tastes so you might like to let it sit in the fridge for about an hour (optional of course). Enjoy!
Here we go with day 2 of our Word of Wisdom 30 Day Health Challenge!
Breakfast was another yummy smoothie and Aussie Bites. We are almost out of Aussie Bites so we are going to need to be a little more creative tomorrow… But they taste so good we couldn’t resist having the same thing today. It’s a super fast and easy breakfast too.
For lunch we made a beautiful veggie tray. We sliced carrots, yellow and orange peppers, cucumbers and celery. We had some left over Hummus to dip the veggies in. We also made up some of our quick and easy ranch dip. The protein from the humus made the meal much more filling and we also had a few small slices of strongly flavored cheese. We have discovered that when the flavor is strong such as feta, Gouda, hot pepper jack, garlic jack or mozzarella we don’t need as much as when we eat something more mild like cheddar. Since we are striving to use dairy as more of a condiment rather than a main course we have found this trick to be quite tasty! The boys in our family wanted a little more protein. They ate a bowl of chili with avocado, olives, tomatoes and a little sour cream. Still mostly plant based so we are good. We are focusing on each meal being at least 80% plant based.
Dinner was Navajo tacos! We made up some whole wheat scones and topped it with some “taco meat” made with lentils and millet. We had tomatoes, avocados, olives, sour cream, onions, and a little cheese on top. As our vegetable we had Garlic Roasted Broccoli. We will be posting these recipes soon too so keep checking back! They are yummy you don’t want to miss them 😉 (Update: You can now find the recipe we use for scones HERE!)
Two days in a row… That’s pretty awesome right?! Haha It’s definitely a start. Thanks for checking in!
