(Taken from the Vegan Feast Kitchen Blog)
Makes about 2 cups


In a blender, mix until smooth:

  • 8 ounces medium-firm tofu OR (2/3 of a box) firm or extra-firm SILKEN tofu, crumbled
  • 6 tablespoons maple syrup OR half of a 6 ounce can frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed
  • 6 tablespoons non-dairy milk
  • 3 tablespoons cider vinegar (or other preferred vinegar-- not red wine or balsamic vinegar, but light wine vinegars, berry or fruit vinegars are good!)
  • 1- 1 1/2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons wholegrain Dijon mustard
  • 1 scant teaspoon salt

Store in a jar in the refrigerator. This recipe is easily multiplied.

VARIATIONS:
Use the white part of 2 or 3 green onions, or a shallot, instead of the onion.

Use lemon juice instead of vinegar (you could also add a teaspoon of organic lemon zest, if you wish).

Use 3 tablespoons maple syrup and 3 tablespoons frozen orange juice concentrate for the sweetener, and add a teaspoon of organic orange zest, if you wish.
