A couple of months ago my friend Tanya came up for a weekend visit with her husband and two of our other friends. While here she made this amazing tofu dip for us to eat. I’ve been making it ever sense with a bit of a tweak to unglutenize it.
1 carton of firm organic tofu
2 heaping tbls of Nutritional Yeast
3 small Vlasic picles chopped fine
1/4 red onion chopped fine
dash of pepper
1-2 tbls of Braggs Aminos
2 heaping tbls of Veganaise
Let the tofu block drain a bit in a colander and then break it up and crumble it with your hands into a bowl. Add the other ingredients and mix together. The Braggs can be a bit salty so play with what amount works for you. Serve cold with some yummy organic tortilla chips and voila! You’ve got a yummy, vegan and gluten free dip thats super high in protein and has a dilly savory taste. The truth is that all of these amounts can be played with. When Tanya gave me the recipe she merely said, “Tofu with some nutritional yeast, some onion and a couple of pickles…” The original dip she made for us had soy sauce instead of Braggs and that wasn’t to good for me as soy sauce contains gluten. Bragg’s always makes a great substitute for soy sauce, but I think that soon I’m going to try gluten free tamari to see if that taste any different.
Anyway, if anyone makes this let me know what you think! I love it and have been making it once a week since Tanya’s visit!
