Vegan Tofu Russian Dressing
From: lady

I love this stuff! I've been eating it on everything from falafal to my salads. Yummy. This is a slight adaptation from a recipe I found in a cookbook I got at the library called "Meatless Burgers" by Louise Hagler. The original recipe called for making the tofu mixture and using that as a mayo. replacement, offering other options to use 1/2 cup of the mayo. I wasn't a huge fan of the basic recipe but loved this russian dressing so I am posting it here in proportions to use the whole tofu mix. The original recipe called for whatever sweetner you choose. I use sucanat (unrefined cane sugar) but you could use what you like. You may need just a bit more ketchup and pickle relish. Taste it after you make it to see.

1 1/2 cups dressing

  • 1 (12 1/3 ounce) package silken tofu
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons sucanat
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 3/4 cup sweet pickle relish

In a food processor or blender mix the tofu, vinegar (lemon juice if you don't have vinegar), sucanat, salt, garlic powder, and dry mustard.

Run the food processor for a while, scraping as you go, until the mix is smooth and creamy.

Put the mix in a bowl.

Add the ketchup and pickle relish and stir until well mixed.

Chill until ready to use.

This will last, refrigerated, up to about a week.
