Yes, yes, we should all be eating more tofu. It’s a heart-healthy vegetarian source of high-quality protein with astonishingly few calories: no argument there. The trick is to make it taste like anything you’d really look forward to eating, right? Because it really doesn’t have any distinctive flavor at all…
One solution is to sneak your tofu into a salad dressing or cream soup. I also have a pretty good recipe for lemon merique pie, using tofu and artificial sweetener, which I’ll no doubt get to later… but lets start here with the simple salad dressing that’s enjoyed a considerable success at my dinner table.
And nothing says that you have to tell your family or guests that there’s tofu on their lettuce!
Green Onion and Tofu Salad Dressing
4 oz. pressed tofu (I use the “silken” variety usually, but any will do)
5 or 6 whole green onions (a.k.a. shallots)
2 Tbsp lemon juice
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
Blend all ingredients until smooth.
Drizzle over the mixed salad greens of your choice, and garnish with chives if desired.
And that’s all there is to it!
