This tofu cream cheese is vegan, takes 5 minutes to make and is such a delicious dairy-free alternative to cream cheese! Perfect to slather on top of your bagels or toast or even as a dip for crackers!
First, the tofu is chopped up into small pieces. I used firm tofu!
The tofu, nutritional yeast, lemon juice and sea salt added in. It’s just 4 simple ingredients!
The green onions were mixed in after the cream cheese are blended until smooth.
It’s so tasty! The nutritional yeast plays a big role in masking the taste of tofu. I’ll definitely be making other flavors but these are the 4 ingredients base ingredients. Let your mind run wild with options to add in!
Garlic Herb: Add 1 tsp garlic powder and 3-4 tbsp herbs
Everything Bagel: Mix in about 2-3 tbsp of seasoning
Blueberry: Mix in cooked and mashed blueberries with 1/4 cup powdered sugar.
