Vegan Creamy Dijon Dressing

Creamy Dijon Dip | Dressing

Creamy Dijon Dip | Dressing :: If you are looking for a creamy & savory dip that is incredibly easy to make, start with this one!

The combination of flavors from the thyme, rosemary and oregano have a beautiful fall or Thanksgiving feel.

You can either create the recipe as written to use as a dip or add an extra 1-2 tablespoons of water to loosen it for a dressing. Please remember, you can always add more water but if you add too much, you cannot go back.

What do I put my Creamy Dijon Dip | Dressing on?

Because this is savory with a fall flavor taste, I love it on:

  • my Fall Harvest Salad. It is full of greens with sweet potato, cranberries, spiced pecans and apple
  • on top of roasted potatoes and vegan sausage
  • smothered on roasted cauliflower or cabbage steaks
  • dipped with veggies like carrots, celery or broccoli
  • along side a Field Roast’s Hazelnut Cranberry Roast En Croute (a favorite of ours for the holidays)
  • on top of a mix of roasted vegetables, or
  • in a bowl of quinoa, white beans, greens, carrots & squash.

Really, the combinations are endless. Just don’t forget to serve it at Thanksgiving!

Ingredients

  • raw cashews, 1/2 cup soaked for at least 30 minutes and rinsed

  • tahini, 2 tbsp

  • unsweetened non-dairy milk, 2 tbsp

  • lemon juice, 2 tbsp

  • dijon mustard, 1 tbsp

  • dried thyme, 1/2 tsp

  • dried rosemary, 1/4 tsp

  • dried oregano, 1/4 tsp

  • sea salt, 1/2 tsp

  • black pepper, 1/4 tsp

  • water, 1/2 cup

Directions

  • In a high speed blender, add all of your ingredients.
  • Start your blender on low to allow cashews to start to break up then slowly turn up to high. Continue to blend until you reach a creamy consistency; stopping and scraping the sides as necessary.
  • The consistency will be a bit thicker like a dip and will thicken in the refrigerator. If you choose to use it as a dressing and would like it a little thinner, add more water 1 tablespoon at a time until desired consistency.
  • Refrigerate until ready to use. This dressing will keep for a few days in the refrigerator.

Notes

  • Dressing :: If you are choosing to add water to create a dressing, please remember, you can always add more water but if you use too much, you cannot go back. So, add 1 tbsp at a time – blend or whisk – until desired consistency.
