I used to make a version of this sauce with sesame oil and tahini. It was delicious, but heavy. Now I love it without the sesame oil, and you could make this flavor – packed version even lower in fat by leaving out the tahini (see Tip). You will still have a really good sauce to use on pasta, steamed vegetables, or many other dishes you’ll find in this book.
1 12-ounce package Mori-Nu Silken Lite Firm Tofu
1/4 cup tahini (not raw)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
4 cloves garlic
2 teaspoons sea salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1. Combine all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth and creamy.
2. Store refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 7 days.
If you leave out the tahini, increase the cilantro to 1 cup.
