It is estimated that 1.23 BILLION chicken wings will be consumed this weekend. If you haven't done the math, that's 600 MILLION chickens that will be slaughtered for their wings.. just for one weekend.
So, I urge you, to look for a compassionate alternative. My favorite 'faux' wings are these amazing wings from Gardein. I PROMISE that nobody could tell the difference; including kids. I love the buffalo, and they also come in a sweeter bbq.
But you CAN'T have buffalo wings without ranch! What's a vegan to do?
This! Serve it up with your wings or a plate of veggies.
Vegan Ranch Dressing/Dip
1 cup vegan sour cream (I use Tofutti)
2 teaspoons parsley
1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon dill weed
black pepper (to taste)
For best taste, allow to sit overnight (or at least several hours) in refrigerator before serving. You can use vegan mayo instead of sour cream, in a pinch, but it will not have the same 'tang' to it.
