I was at a local co-op here they have a spread called “Surfer Spread”. It. is. YUMMY. I was determined to replicate it, I have a ton of RAW unsulfered sun-dried tomatoes, and picked up some local fresh scallions at the Farm Stand down the road and VOILA….It took me two times to get it. I have to say, mine tastes a little bit more badass. Just sayin. Don’t over process the tofu or else you will have more of a paste than you might like but experiment with the consistency you prefer!
Sundried Tomato & Scallion Tofu Spread
¼ sundried tomatoes- rehydrated
1 pound tofu, blanched and drained well
3T Extra Virgin Olive oil
1 small bunch of scallions, trimmed and coarsely chopped
1/4c nutritional yeast
2 cloves garlic
2T shoyu or tamari
1t ume vinegar
salt & pepper to taste
In a food processer, mince the scallions and then remove to a medium size bowl.
In the same work bowl, add the sun dried tomatoes and the oil and process until desired size, I like mine finely minced. Remove 2/3rd of the mix to the scallion bowl. Add the tofu in the work bowl with the garlic, shoyu, ume, and nutritional yeast and process until smooth. Remove to the scallion tomato mix and mix until well incorporated. Season with the salt and pepper, to taste.Place in the refrigerator to chill. (SO much better cold- it firms up as well)Serve with crusty bread (FRICKEN YUM), as a sandwich filler, or as a vegetable dip.
