Onion Dip

Onion Dip

Serves 6
Here's a new take on an old favorite for this year's picnics. Silky soft tofu is the perfect back-drop for pungent onion and garlic in this not-out-of-the-box onion dip.
  • 1 cup soft tofu
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, smashed and peeled
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • 3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Line a colander with several thicknesses of paper towel. Place tofu in a colander and allow to drain 5 to 10 minutes to remove excess water.

Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden. Add garlic and cook, stirring, 3 minutes or until garlic just begins to brown. Remove from heat.

Place sautéed onions and garlic in mini-food processor and process until almost smooth. Add drained tofu and process until smooth. Add vinegar, parsley, salt, and pepper and process 2 to 3 seconds or until just blended.
