Green Onion Tofu Spread
I got the idea to make this tofu spread when I was brainstorming about potential toppings for savoury waffles (which by the way are also on my blog). I wanted to top my waffles with something that was quick and easy to make but that added a lovely brightness and creaminess to a crispy and dense waffle. After doing some research online, I settled on making this tofu spread (which I think could also call tofu ricotta).
I had never made or even tried any kind of tofu spread or tofu ricotta in the past, but I was up for the challenge. I mean it cannot be thaaat hard to make a tofu spread!
I was completely right! Honestly, I was surprised by how easy a spread like this one can be put together and how delicious it tasted. It probably took me 10 minutes from chopping the green onions and measuring the ingredients to transferring it into a jar and putting it away in the fridge!
PLUS: This spread can be used in soooo many ways!
- Spread it on toast & enjoy just as is
- Spread it on toast and top it with sliced avocado and a pinch of salt and pepper
- Enjoy it in a burger as a creamy element
- Use it as a ravioli filling
- Use it in place of ricotta in a lasagna
- Use it as a topping on savoury waffles
- Replace your cheese with it on a homemade pizza
- Enjoy it as a dip with crackers or croutons
- Stuff it in pasta shells and bake with tomato sauce
I think this tofu spread will become a staple in my fridge. It is so versatile that simply by pairing it with different ingredients, you can completely change your gustative experience every time you have it. You guys should definitely give this a try – especially if you are still doubting the incredible power of tofu.
