Chilli and Garlic Tofu Sandwich Spread

I’m always looking for new ideas for sandwiches, we eat a lot of hummus but it’s nice to have something different, so this Tofu Sandwich Spread, whizzed up in my ThermoCook blender is a great alternative, and it’s dairy-free and vegan friendly.

A vegan sandwich spread which is easy to make in a power blender.

I am not an expert with tofu, but I do know that on it’s own it has a very mild flavour. This makes it ideal to carry other flavours, my plan was to create a spread that was full of flavour, not entirely smooth but with a little texture.  The Optimum Froothie ThermoCook is a brilliant multi-function blender with a heating element which has pretty well replaced my food processor and blender. You don’t need the heating element for this recipe, but you do need a good blender.

Making Vegan Tofu Sandwich Spread in the Thermocook

I’m really excited by the prospect of adding different flavours to this spread, I’m sure that olives, sun dried tomatoes and many other vegetables could be added to ring the changes.  The texture is quite soft so it would also make a great dip with crisps/chips and vegetable crudities.

What do you think would work well with this tofu spread?

    Great idea. I eat tofu most days (baked, grilled, dehydrated, made into tofush) but haven’t thought about using it as a spread before!

      And yet somehow once I had made it, I did wonder why I never thought of it before!

      Thanks Sarah, I think the possibilities are endless!

      The spring onions are the thing that needs most chopping so if you chop them finely first, you should be okay, the tofu is pretty soft.

    What a brilliant way to use tofu. Despite being vegetarian for more years than I care to remember, I’ve only ever used tofu on rare occasions so haven’t experimented with it nearly as much as I should have. The flavours sound really good and as you say this would make a great dip too.

      I’m rather surprised by that, Choclette. I think you will have to develop some tofu recipes for Tin & thyme.
