Ranchified Veggie Cakes {Recipe}

When I was asked to take part in the Hidden Valley Ranch Recipe Challenge I couldn’t resist the challenge! What is the challenge?  To “ranchify” a recipe with an emphasis on fresh ingredients.  I knew right away which of my favorite fresh recipes I was going to rock with a little help from Hidden Valley! The only tough decision would be which flavour – Original, Cheese or Spicy – to use!

This recipe is a family favorite that you can feel great about serving.   Packed full of fresh veggies and so delicious!Ranch Dressing

Ranchified Veggie Cakes

Makes 10 cakes

Veggie Cakes


  • 1 cup of shredded carrots
  • 1 cup of shredded zucchini (squeeze out excess moisture)
  • 1 cup of shredded sweet potatoes
  • ½ cup of whole kernel corn
  • 1 cup of shredded potatoes (frozen shredded hashbrowns work well)
  • ½ cup of fresh or frozen peas
  • 1 egg slightly beaten
  • ¼ cup of your favorite ranch dressing (I used Cheese)
  • ½ cup of flour
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil

For Dip:

  • ¼ cup of your favorite ranch dressing (I used Spicy)
  • ¾ cup of plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon of honey


Combine all of the vegetables in a large bowl.  Mix well. Add the beaten egg and the ranch dressing and stir until combined with the veggies.  Add the flour and mix again.

In a large frying pan heat the oil over medium heat.  Using your hands, form your veggie mixture into patties. Fry on each side until golden brown (approximately 5-7 minutes on each side).  Remove from heat and serve with the yogurt dip.

To make the yogurt dip simply mix all of the ingredients in a small bowl and serve along side your veggie cakes.

  3. I didn't know that you could cook with salad dressing. Neat! Love the plain yogurt as a dip. I use it for potatos, falafels, everything except when I have Hidden Valley on hand. Mmm.

    Those look amazing. I really should have eaten before coming here. You'd think I'd learn by now.
