Creamy Onion Dip / Salad & Pasta Dressing

It's not always easy to eat the amount of raw vegetables we need in a day. This creamy, thick and flavorful onion dip will make them a pleasure to eat.

It doubles as a salad dressing as well as a pasta dressing. I put 1/2 cup of this in with a prepared 13oz. pack of whole wheat spaghetti pasta, a handful of chopped fresh basil and a cup of roasted tomatoes and OMG, the best pasta I've had in a long time.

In a food processor place almonds, salt and sugar and blend for 2 minutes. Next throw in vinegar, lemon juice, garlic, onion, olive oil, onion powder, and tofu (remember the tofu does not need pressing)and blend for about a minute and a half. With a rubber spatula empty out dip into a small bowl and place in fridge for about an hour to get it good and chilled.
