This month’s RecipeRedux theme is “kitchen DIYs” – things that dietitians do themselves instead of buying! Be sure to click the blue frog at the bottom of the post for everyone’s hacks.
I started blending my own garlic & onion mix years ago to put in greek yogurt as a healthy, easy dip, and I call it my Guilt-Free Ranch. A few simple spices you probably already have on hand, and you’ve got the beloved Ranch Dressing flavor profile! This is also a great base to add other dried herbs to – basil, dill, oregano…the great thing about spices is that they are easy to play with and add so much flavor (and even some phytonutrients and vitamins!) for 0 calories.
DIY Ranch Seasoning Base:
- 1 tablespoon garlic powder
- 1 tablespoon onion powder
- 1 tablespoon dried minced onion
- 2 tablespoons freeze-dried chives
- 1 teaspoon salt
