SHARON’S TOFU BUTTER SPREAD
Smart Balance Buttery Spread combined with Silken tofu to create a beautifully delicious fluffy spread for toast and bread and as a topping for soup, sauce and pasta dishes!
Makes 1-¾ cups
12.3 oz. pkg. extra firm Silken-type tofu, rinse, then roll in several layers of paper towels and squeeze to extract liquid
½ t. salt
1 T. rice wine vinegar
1 sm. tub Smart Balance Light Buttery Spread (vegan) with flax seed oil, softened at room temperature
Place tofu and salt in food processor and process till smooth, scraping down insides of container with spatula.
Add rice vinegar and process again till whipped like mayonnaise.
Next, add softened margarine. Process again, this time for about a minute till whipped.
Transfer to jar and refrigerate till ready to use.
Notes: SHARON’S TOFU BUTTER SPREAD is always soft. So you don’t have to deal with spreading hard margarines on your breads or toast. Top your bowl of soup with a tablespoon to add a rich buttery flavor, or spoon some into your sauces and gravies just before serving.
Plain margarine is all fat. Adding the tofu increases the nutritional value and you can use more. It’s thick, whipped consistency, much like creme fraiche, is a pure delight! Use only Silken-type tofu.
