Quick Summertime Vegetable Dip

This dip is super easy and quick to prepare. It features protein-packed tofu and antioxidant-rich, delicious cilantro. Cilantro contains a compound called dodecenal which has antimicrobial properties (studies have found cilantro to be as effective as antibiotics at killing salmonella). This makes a great mid-afternoon snack served with your favorite raw veggies!

Makes 4 servings


½ cube very firm tofu

1 cup (packed) cilantro leaves

¼ cup Veganaise

1 teaspoon garlic powder

(a little chopped jalapeno is optional)


Put everything into a mini food processor and process until smooth.
