Tofu and Herb Dips

Serves 4
This tangy dip is not only a  dip but also a great sauce. Think about a yogurt sauce, and substitute that yogurt with this. I love eating falafel, couscous and tabouli together with this dip.



  • 150 g (5.5 oz) firm tofu
  • 2 tbsp neutral oil
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1/3 tsp sea salt


  1. Leave the tofu to soften for 1 to 2 hours or break the tofu into small pieces and boil for 2 minutes and drain, then leave for 10 minutes to remove the excess water from tofu. (You can also microwave the tofu for 2 minutes for quick removal of water but I don’t recommend this for health reasons).
  2. Place the other ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.


Tip: The key to blending well is to firstly process the chunky ingredients very well, and then add the tofu or softer ingredients such as avocado.
