Finally – A Delicious Tofu Dip!!

Sun-dried tomato tofu dip

Versatile Vegan Tofu Dip!

Store-bought dips can be packed with hidden sugars… Homemade dips tend to contain Greek yogurt or cheese for a rich and creamy texture… So, how can you make a rich, creamy, satiating dip without added sugar or dairy AND on a time crunch? The answer: TOFU. Yup – you read that right… When blended with fats, firm tofu transforms into a rich and creamy vegan tofu dip – perfect for vegetable crudités, Socca Crackers, or as a stuffing for lettuce cups.

Check out Chef Kenzie’s vegan tofu dip recipe and serve as a snack (for your next dinner party appetizer) or to serve as a full meal for lunch-on-a-time-crunch! The recipe serves one for a complete meal, or 2-4 for a snack-sized portion. If you’re serving for a crowd, double up the recipe and serve in the center of a vegetable platter for a delicious appetizer the whole family will love.
