Consider me an occasional fan of tofu.
My parents were early adopters of tofu. Remember back when health food had as much cheese and potatoes as tofu? Sure… there was the weirdest brown rice ever, but we covered it in cheese and sauce and all was right with the world.
Nowadays, I’m an occasional tofu enthusiast. Count me among the few who just realized that you can make a delicious dipping and salad dressing from TOFU! Did you know this? Were you keeping it from me?
This thick dressing is creamy, satisfying, and doesn’t read as tofu per say… not that that would be a bad thing, but you know what I mean. This dressing is more Ranch in distinction. Herby, bright, and almost so good you want to rub it on your face (which is weird).
Into the food processor with silken tofu. Firm silken tofu is key! It blends up super smooth and creamy.
Add fresh parsley and fresh basil for bright and herby elements. Lemon and vinegar for a necessary mouth-pucker. Garlic for spice. Salt and pepper for balance. Olive oil for because we’re luscious.
Creamy and smooth, herby and bright vegetable dip! It’s a delight and the fact that it’s made from tofu and not sour cream is such a bonus! To our health!
