Sauce for Steamed Artichokes (Tofu Dressing Recipe) Recipe

Artichokes are harvested year-round but I usually notice an increase in quantity and quality starting in March. We live near Castrovilleso I can find artichokes in abundance this season. Normally, I would make a flavorful aïoli to dip the artichoke leaves in. But given the extra few pounds I need to shed from my baby weight, I experimented with a healthier alternative. I made a quick and easy sauce with silken tofu and the usual ingredients I would use for vinaigrette.

The result is a creamy, tasty sauce without any funkiness from the tofu. This proves that you don't necessarily need to add melted butter, garlic and lemon to make an artichoke flavorful.

Creamy Gorgonzola Ranch Salad Dressing Recipe

I had some gorgonzola left over from the cheese soufflé I made yesterday, so I decided to make a salad dressing out of it. Instead of going for the obvious choice of making a bleu cheese dressing with the gorgonzola, I opted to make a ranch dressing. Ranch salad dressing is a blend of mayonnaise, sour cream, buttermilk and spices. Traditional mayonnaise calls for egg yolks but my 9-year-old- sister-in-law is deathly allergic to eggs so I substitute it with homemade vegenaise made with silken tofu.

This flavorful salad dressing meets everyone's diet restrictions in my home while still being delicious. I hope you will enjoy it as well.
