1 teaspoon dried parsley

Dressing Mix.

To make dressing, mix this recipe with 1 cup mayonnaise and 1 cup buttermilk.
For dip, mix this recipe with 1 3/4 cups sour cream and 1/4 cup of buttermilk.
Use in place of one packet of Ranch dressing mix in recipes.

I double this recipe up, and use 1 tsp per 1/4 cup mayo and buttermilk ( wether vegan mayo, and soymilk buttermilk or regular), let it sit for an hour or so in the fridge and serve!

Talia's light and crispy baked french fries (Vegan. Low Fat, Simple)

Slice as many potatos as you want into a fry shape. I kept the peel on for extra vitamin C and Fiber.

I then soaked them for a few minutes in ice cold water anddried them.

I then sprayed with pam and sprinkled them in whatever spices I wanted to use.

I baked the fries for 15 minutes at 350, then at 400 for about 15 -20 more minutes and broiled them for 6 minutes to crisp them right.

Serve with your favorite condiment and enjoy!
