Line a colander with paper towels. Place tofu on paper towels and drain while preparing the other ingredients.

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

Gently press tofu with paper towels to remove as much remaining water as possible; break tofu into chunks. Place tofu and onion mixture in the bowl of a food processor and process until almost smooth, about 1 minute. Add miso and tahini and continue to process until smooth. If desired, add a little lemon juice to taste. Stir in chives.
