Lowfat Liberal Sundried Tomato Dip & Spread

Friends . . . I made something DELISH!

With a few random ingredients and a moment of inspiration before I headed over to my friends Allison & Clark's election watching party, I whipped up a new creation, that for this election season I dubbed my new Lowfat Liberal Sundried Tomato Dip & Spread. And let me tell you . . . it is so low fat, that you can use it liberally everywhere from veggies to a piece of toast, and you'll never guess what is in it! YUM!

Lowfat Liberal Sundried Tomato Dip & Spread
  • 12-15 Sundried Tomatoes in oil, drained
  • 1 Clove Garlic
  • 1/3 Package Lowfat Firm Tofu, like MoriNu
  • 1/3 Cup Lowfat / Natural Yogurt
  • 1/4 Cup Lowfat Sour Cream
  • 1 Liberal Squeeze Italian Seasoning from Gourmet Garden
  • Sea Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper to taste
Here is the fun and easy part . . . put all the ingredients in a blender or Cuisinart (my fave gadget) and blend to your desired consistency. Seriously. That is it. So good. So good for you. So many Obama fans amazed at how darn good for you this tasty stuff is!!!

Interestingly, my inspiration was a recipe that was similar, except that it called for mayo instead of all my dairy/tofu combos. Yuck. Mayo. No way, no how. Needless to say, this worked so well that I am tempted to replace more things with tofu in the future. Stay tuned and enjoy some Lowfat Liberal Sundried Tomato Dip this football and holiday season:))

Hey - instead of cream, for cream soups, i puree silken tofu in chicken or vegetable broth as the "cream." It adds protein and creaminess without tons of fat.

Steph that is brilliant! I hadn't thought of that . . . in fact, John and I were toying with tofu for carbonara sauce - but I think I'll start with soup:)
Thanks for sharing:)))
