I have to confess that I am obsessed with Buffalo sauce, but I have never tried buffalo wings, and the truth is I do not feel like it. But the good thing about following a vegan diet is that you never miss trying dishes or ingredients you like or feel drawn to. You have to turn the recipe around a bit and look for plant-based ingredients.

Ingredients to make the buffalo sauce

  • Hot sauce. You can use Cholula or Frankie’s hot sauce (affiliate). If you have another favorite hot sauce, use it.
  • Oil or butter. I like to use avocado oil, but any other vegetable works well. You could also make a combination of oil and butter.
  • Garlic powder, check very well that it is only garlic powder, not salt with garlic powder.
  • Onion powder. The same as the garlic salt, check that it is only onion powder.
  • Salt

INGREDIENTS TO MAKE HOMEMADE RANCH DRESSING

  • Yogurt. I use vegan yogurt from the Kite Hill brand or the Forager, but use whichever you like best. A good tip is to look for one that does not have sugar.
  • Mayonnaise. You can use homemade vegan mayonnaise or any vegan mayonnaise you can find on the market.
  • Garlic powder.
  • Onion powder.
  • Salt
  • Fresh dill, parsley, and chives.

🔥TIP

This recipe for homemade buffalo sauce can be doubled and stored in the refrigerator to use with-in other recipes like:

How to make homemade ranch dressing?

In a medium bowl mix the ingredients and let it rest for 5-10 minutes. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary, you may need more salt, more herbs or more garlic powder. Adjust to make it really delicious.

IMPORTANT NOTE✨

Use herbs that are as fresh as possible, the fresher the better they taste. That's why it's important to adjust the flavor of your ranch dressing.

Chop the herbs really small and if you like them super super small, you can put them in a food processor and pulse until they are as small as you want.
