It’s Veganuary – try this high protein, low calorie whipped tofu spread!

High-protein, low-calorie whipped tofu recipe:

It’s Veganuary! And whether you’re looking for more plant-based options or a healthy recipe to shake up your meal, planning, we’ve got you covered! This whipped tofu recipe is great to use as a base for harvest bowls, to add into a stew or curry or to use as a spread.

There’s so much you can do with whipped tofu! And it’s a great way to add extra lean plant protein into your diet. Add it to sarmies, in wraps, use as a creamy addition to a harvest bowl or swirl it through your favourite hearty stews.
Getting the smooth consistency right will depend on your blender (high speed needed) and you might need to add more moisture (soya milk) or fat (extra virgin olive oil) to get the consistency just right.

What You Need:
– 1 block of firm tofu (300-350g)
– 2-3 tbsp Extra-virgin olive oil
– ¼ to ½ cup Soya milk (or water)
– Zest and juice of a lemon
– Salt
– Black pepper

Method:

1/ Crumble the tofu into the high-quality food processor or blender. Add in ¼ cup of soya milk or water, 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, a sprinkle of zest and 1 tbsp lemon juice. Blitz together until well combined. Check the texture. If it’s still grainy, add 1 tsp oil and tsp water or soya milk and blend again. (Adding a little more until the texture is right for your taste).

2/ Taste is as important as texture. If you would like the whipped tofu to have more acidity, add more lemon juice. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Notes: You can add herbs, roasted garlic (or garlic oil) to add more flavour to your whipped tofu.
