Curry Dip, tofu style! (party menu 3 of 4)
This dip was delicious! And, as my nanny pointed out: it can be used to dip anything! Even non vegan stuff like calamari. I enjoyed this one the day after the party with cucumber and red bell pepper spears. The best part? It's packed with protein because it's made with tofu! Perfection :)
1/2 pound silken tofu
1 Tablespoon olive oil
2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon curry powder (use more if you really want a kick)
1 Tablespoon agave nectar
1 1/2 Tablespoons reduced sodium, gluten free tamari (if you're not gluten intolerant, you can use reg. tamari)
4 + Tablespoons chopped chives
Chive or green onion sprigs for decoration
In a blender or food processor, mix together the silken tofu, olive oil, lemon juice, curry powder, agave nectar and tamari until smooth. Transfer into a mixing bowl and fold in chives.
Transfer into a good looking serving bowl, top with some chive or green onion sprigs, for decoration and chill until ready to serve.
Serve with assorted sliced vegetables, pretzels, bread... go crazy, it goes great with everything!
Note: I didn't get a picture of this one at the party but I'll take one and post it soon :)
