Tofu Raita

Makes 2 cups

30 minutes or fewer

This classic Indian condiment is usually made with yogurt. We've substituted silken tofu, lemon juice and vinegar for the same creamy-tangy taste without the dairy.
  • 8 oz. silken tofu, drained
  • 3 Tbs. vegetable oil
  • 2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp. brown rice vinegar or rice vinegar
  • ¾ tsp. salt
  • 1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded and cut into thin crescents
  • ¼ cup dry roasted peanuts, chopped, divided
  • 1 serrano chile, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 Tbs. finely chopped fresh mint
  • ½ tsp. ground cumin

1. Purée tofu, oil, lemon juice, vinegar and salt in food processor until smooth. Transfer to medium bowl.

2. Stir in cucumber, 2 Tbs. peanuts, chile, mint and cumin. Sprinkle remaining peanuts on top.
