Vegan Oil-Free Ranch Dressing (jalapeño ranch option)

I've been experimenting with ranch dressing for over 2 years.  I've tried many different recipes and have never made a bad one.  I consider this one a culmination of over 2 years of research and lots and lots of salads... and many batches of cauliflower buffalo wings!

If you like it spicy add the picked jalapeños. You won't be sorry!

Vegan Ranch Dressing
1 12.3-ounce box firm silken tofu
¼ cup soaked cashews
¾ tsp onion powder
2 tsp dried dill
1/3 cup non-dairy milk
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 large cloves garlic
2 Tbsp Braggs liquid aminos
2 Tbsp lemon juice
½ packet stevia, or about 3 drops liquid stevia
¼ cup nutritional yeast
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp black pepper
3 Tbsp pickled jalapeño (optional, for jalapeño ranch dressing flavor)
Blend all ingredients in blender until smooth. Pour into glass jar and refrigerate.  Tastes best when allowed to chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours, but still good immediately.
