Ingredients

1
cup mashed soft tofu (8 oz)
2
tablespoons lemon juice
1
tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2
teaspoon salt
2
tablespoons finely chopped shallot (1 large)
1
clove garlic, finely chopped
2
teaspoons vegetable oil
1
tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon leaves or 1 teaspoon dried tarragon leaves
1
lb fresh asparagus spears

Directions

  • 1 To make mayonnaise, in blender or food processor, place tofu, lemon juice, mustard, salt, shallot and garlic. Cover and blend on medium speed until smooth. With blender on, add oil by drops. Place in glass or plastic container; stir in tarragon. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour or until chilled.

Tips  

Known in China as “the meat without bones,” tofu is a top-notch protein source. It’s made from soy milk mixed with a curdling agent. The resulting soybean curd is enjoying increased popularity as the many health benefits of soy are discovered.

Add leftover tofu to scrambled eggs or egg salads for a cholesterol-free protein boost.
