Line a colander with a couple of paper towels. Place tofu on paper towels and allow it to drain while preparing the other ingredients.

Heat oil over medium heat in a skillet. Add onion and garlic. Sauté 3 to 4 minutes, stirring often, until onion is translucent. Remove from heat.

Gently press tofu with paper towels to remove as much remaining water as possible. Break tofu up and place it, along with sautéed onions and garlic in the bowl of a food processor and process until almost smooth. Add miso and tahini and continue to process until smooth. If desired, add a little lemon juice to taste. Stir in chives.
