Method

Bring water to a boil in a sauce pan.

Add tofu and simmer over medium heat for 20 minutes; drain well.

Roast seeds in a heavy pan over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until they just begin to brown, about 5 minutes.

Combine basil, oil, miso and garlic in a food processor; process until a paste is formed, about 1 minute.

Add tofu and seeds; process again until smooth.

Chill at least 30 minutes before serving to allow flavors to meld.
