Green Goddess Tofu Dressing

Any number of herbs were delicious in this dressing; we liked parsley’s clean, herbaceous background, the mellow allium note from chives and tarragon’s distinctive licorice flavor. Lemon zest added a hit of citrus, but lemon juice was too sharp. Instead, we opted for sweet-tart white balsamic vinegar. We preferred the more neutral flavor of shelf-stable tofu—found in the Asian foods aisle—over its refrigerated counterpart. While the dressing can be served right away, we preferred to let the flavors meld for at least an hour in the refrigerator. It keeps for up to four days.



Don’t use dried tarragon. If fresh tarragon isn’t available, substitute 3 tablespoons of chopped fresh dill or basil.

I only had extra firm tofu, but whipped this up in my Vitamix and it turned out silky and delicious.

Pardon the interruption
