Yield: Makes ample hors d'oeuvre for 4.

This dip is really a delightful garlicky hummus. Augmented with other goodies -- tomatoes, cucumbers, and lettuce, for instance -- it also makes an excellent sandwich filling.


  • 8 ounces tofu
  • 3 tablespoons lemon or lime juice (usually 1 large lemon or lime)
  • 1 clove garlic, sliced
  • 4 tablespoons tahini (sesame flaste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • Chopped Italian parsley, for garnish
  • Chopped onion, for garnish


Place first 6 ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. To serve, place in a shallow bowl and sprinkle with chopped parsley and onion. Offer wedges of pita to scoop it up.
