Dairy-Free Tofu Green Goddess Dip
Developed by: Katie Sullivan Morford, MS, RD
- 4 ounces silken tofu
- ½ ripe avocado
- ¼ cup light mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice 2 tablespoons water
- 15 fresh basil leaves, torn
- 3 green onions, white and light green parts, cut into a few pieces
- 1 small clove garlic, chopped
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
Instructions for Dairy-Free Tofu Green Goddess DipFor dipping: Cut up vegetables, such as carrots, radishes, cucumber, and snap peas.
Put all of the ingredients into the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade and run until creamy and smooth.
Transfer to a bowl and serve with cut up vegetables for dipping.
Makes 1 cup.
Notes: Classic green goddess gets a nourishing makeover by relying on tofu and avocado for creaminess in place of sour cream. The result is an herbaceous dip that packs more protein, fiber, and healthy fats than its more traditional counterpart. Take it from dip to salad dressing by adding an extra tablespoon or two of water.
