Spinach tofu dip: Ovo-lacto vegetarian style

See also

If your dietary regimen permits Parmesan and Romano cheese to be intermixed with tofu to lend the tofu a cheesy taste and you want to mix it all with spinach and season with spices and herbs, you can try this recipe which combines tofu, cheese, tahini, curry, turmeric, artichokes, and spinach and is used as a dip for any type of flat bread, chip, or cracker.

The crackers or chips can be home-made by baking or dehydrating the chips or crackers without additional fats because you have plenty of fats in this dip from the tahini, cheese, and tofu as well as the grapeseed Vegenaise (a vegan nondairy spread you use like mayonnaise). See, "Vegenaise - Follow Your Heart."
