This tofu dip is awesome. Vegan, flavorful, healthy, easy . . . basically everything I love in a new recipe. Serve it with vegetable sticks, rice crackers, sweet potato fries, or whatever else you have on hand. Or realize it’s too delicious for its own good and just start scooping bites into your mouth, like I do ;)


  • 6 oz silken tofu
  • 2 Tbs olive oil
  • 1 tiny clove garlic, minced
  • 1 green onion, minced
  • 1 heaping tsp umeboshi (Japanese pickled plum) paste
  • 1 tsp dried basil


Coarsely chop the green onion, garlic, and tofu, and throw everything in a blender or food processor. Viola! Dip is served.

Non-food processor version:

Sometimes, I’d rather make a lumpy dip than need to clean an extra kitchen item. Actually, this is true most of the time. If you feel the same way, try this version. First, mince the garlic and green onion to the best of your ability using a knife. Second, mush everything together until it’s as smooth as you can get it. Enjoy!
