The VT staffers couldn’t get enough of these bite-size appetizers—and couldn’t believe they were made with tofu cream cheese. (Fresh chives mask the soy flavor.)
- 1 1/2 cups walnuts, divided
- 16 oz. tofu cream cheese
- 1 cup finely chopped chives, (4 bunches), divided
- 1/2 small shallot, minced (1 Tbs.)
- 1/4 tsp. smoked paprika
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spread walnuts on baking sheet, and bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until fragrant. Cool, and grind finely in food processor.
Stir together cream cheese, 3 Tbs. chives, shallot, smoked paprika, and 3 Tbs. walnuts until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Scoop mixture into 2 tsp.-size balls. Roll half in remaining chopped chives and half in remaining walnuts. Serve immediately.
