Nutritional Facts
Servings 8Serving Size 1/4 Cup




  • 1/2 Cup Blanched Slivered Almonds
  • 1/2 Cup Almond or Soy Milk
  • 1 Tablespoon Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1/2 Lemon, Juiced
  • 1 Teaspoon Sugar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Sea Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Onion Powder
  • Dash Black Pepper
  • 2/3 14 oz. Block Firm Tofu


Place almonds, almond milk, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, sugar, salt, onion powder and pepper into a blender and blend until smooth. Do not put the tofu in the blender!

In a small mixing bowl place the lightly pressed tofu and smash it with a fork until it is completely broken up, not smooth but not too lumpy. Then add the almond mixture from the blender and mix that with it. Use immediately or store in a container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
