Silken Tofu Spread with Spelt Crackers - Where Is My Spoon

Velvety, soft silken tofu spread with tahini, a vegan delight that even meat-eaters will love.

I make lots and lots of bread spreads, but this one really made it to the top of my list lately. If it just wasn’t so difficult to get hold of some silken tofu around here, I would probably make it once a week. But every time I do get silken tofu, at least half of it is used for this heavenly spread.

I love it on crispbread or with the newly discovered vegan, spelt crackers, or use it as a dip for vegetables like carrots, kohlrabi, peppers, and so on. I just love its creaminess and that hint of garlic and balsamic vinegar.

What is silken tofu?

We all know the regular, firm tofu, but what is silken tofu?

  • It is Japanese tofu, very soft and jiggly, undrained, and unpressed tofu.
  • It is perfect for making dips and spreads, sauces, and salad dressing.
  • It is also suitable for making vegan puddings and other desserts and it can be used as an egg substitute in baking.
