Really Good Vegan Spinach Tofu Dip (Even if You Hate Tofu/Vegan

The olives really make this dip - don't omit them! :) I'm a diehard carnivore, but I was going to a potluck and wanted to bring a cheap, egg-free, dairy-free dish in case there were allergies or vegetarians there. I took about six recipes off the Internet, combined them and added a few more things, and it was great! I let it sit in the fridge for two days and just re-mixed it before serving. At the potluck, there was not a single vegetarian there, and they all liked this dip. Cayenne and grated carrot would probably be great in this and make it a more "traditional" spinach dip. You may want to start with less garlic if you're not a big fan.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Defrost spinach and squeeze out as much liquid as you can.
  2. Drain tofu of any excess liquid.
  3. Place tofu and oil in a large bowl. Use a hand mixer on high speed to combine them until creamy.
  4. Add pepper, vegetable bouillon powder, dried basil, garlic powder, soy sauce, and lemon juice. Blend on high speed for 1 minute.
  5. On low speed, mix in onion, spinach, and olives.
  6. Taste and adjust seasonings to your preference.
  7. Cover the bowl and place in the fridge. Let it sit for at least 8 hours for the flavours to meld, preferably overnight.
  8. Serve with crackers, bread, chips, or vegetables for dipping.

Nice of you to make a vegan dish when you eat meat.

The absolute most delicious dip I've ever made. I'm a new vegetarian and was very intimidated by tofu. I tested it on my family and they couldn't stop eating it. I'm making g batch 2 this weekend. Oh and recipe is accurate when it says don't omit olives. I don't even like kalamata olives but the hint of flavor they offer is the best part. I served multigrain crackers with it

Excellent! This was a huge hit with a veggie/cracker tray I made for a party. I used chicken bouillon granules and shallot in place of onion. I also used light tofu. Great recipe, just great. Thanks!
