Onion Dip

Onion Dip

Makes 3/4 cup
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.
Ingredients: 
  • 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

Method: 
Line a colander with several layers 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 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.
