A quickly prepared – and healthy – dip to serve with drinks or as a summer starter.
250g (9oz) plain, softish tofu
1 tsp Dijon style mustard
a small handful parsley
1- 2 tbsp chopped chives or other soft fresh herbs of your choice
salt and freshly ground pepper
a few drops olive oil
Drain the tofu and cut into large cubes. Place in the chopper with the mustard, parsley and any soft herbs (except chives).
Whiz at top speed to blend to a chunky cream, scrape down sides of the bowl from time to time.
If using chives, snip them with scissors and stir in. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Pile into a little bowl and trickle some olive oil over the top.
Serve with celery sticks or rice crackers.
