From Vibrant Life Magazine (non-dairy)
(Yields 2 Cups - 2 Tbs. serving: 40 Calories, 3 grams fat)
- 1 (12.3 oz) package silken lite, firm, shelf stable Tofu (Mori-Nu brand)
- 1⁄2 C vegan mayonnaise
- 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 Tsp. dry dill
- 1/4 Tsp. pepper
- 1 Tsp onion pwd.
- 1/4 Tsp salt or to taste
- 1/2 Tsp Herbamere by A.Vogel (organic herb infused sea salt) or 1/2 tsp celery salt
- 1/2 Tsp garlic pwd.
- 1-2 Tbs water or more depending how thick or thin you like it.
- 1 Tbs fresh parsley or 4 tsp dried (add last after blending so it doesn't turn green)
Place ingredients in blender (except parsley) and process until smooth, scraping down the sides occasionally, about 1 min. If too thick add water to desired consistency. Add parsley and pulse to blend. Pour into a container and chill before serving to absorb the flavors.
Altered recipe: If you don't want to use mayonnaise you can soak 1/2 Cup raw cashews with water overnight or a couple of hours to soften. Drain and add to the ingredients when blending.
