Tablespoon

Ingredients

  • 1⁄2 cup soft silken tofu (4 oz.)
  • 1⁄2 cup tightly packed fresh herbs, such as basil, dill, parsley or cilantro
  • 3 Tbs. olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. water
  • 1 Tbs. fresh lemon juice, plus more if needed
  • 1⁄2 tsp. salt, plus more if needed

Preparation

  1. In blender or food processor, combine all ingredients and 2 tablespoons water. Process until very smooth, scraping down sides of bowl once or twice, about 2 minutes.
  2. Use immediately or refrigerate in tightly sealed container for up to 3 days. (The vibrant color will become olive drab, but the taste will not be affected.) Stir well before each use. Thin with 1⁄2 teaspoon lemon juice or water (or more if needed) if dressing becomes too thick.
