Silken tofu is not pressed during production like other types of tofu and thus contains much more liquid making it softer.
The true beauty of silken tofu is that it blends up easily, transforming into a silky, creamy consistency.
In vegetarian and vegan cooking, silken tofu adds a touch of creaminess to recipes prepared without eggs, cheese, mayonnaise and dairy.
Beyond that, it can also be used to prepare eggless dishes, creamy delicious desserts or even topped with a savory, umami flavored sauce to eat up all on its own.

This was very easy to make! The webpage was hard to read on my phone, so consider printing the recipe. I made a few adjustments based on what I had in the house—only 1/4 c nutritional yeast, added vegan mozzarella, a whole bag frozen spinach, artichokes packed in brine (rinsed), dried onions, dried garlic, dried dill (don’t think I could taste the dill).
Thank you, Samantha! Glad you enjoyed the spinach artichoke dip from the collection! Love the idea of adding the vegan mozzarella too and that you were able to make it work with what you had. 🙂
