Mrs. Jetplane cooking healthy...

Well as promised I have a great recipe that believe it or not has tofu in it. Now, let me tell you, Mrs. Jetplane is not a fan of tofu, so I was very leery of this recipe. But I trusted my dear friend Dr. W. She actually got this recipe from the nutritionist that she was seeing, it was part of the diet plan she was given.

Ingredients

1 Packet of Hidden Valley Ranch
1 14oz Tofu (recipe recommends Mori-Nu brand) UPDATE: Firm Tofu
3/4 cup canola oil
2 tbsp of vinegar (I used apple cider)
1 egg
3 packets of Splenda
Dash of Season All Salt

Blend egg and vinegar on Medium, with blender on add oil in a thin stream.
Then add seasonings and tofu.
Blend and then stir.
Refrigerate before stirring.

1/4cup = 1 serving

I love to eat this with veggies, put it on a sandwich instead of mayo, use as a dip for chicken strips, or eat with melba toast crackers.

Enjoy!

And heads up...my next healthy recipe is an awesome Poppy Seed Salad Dressing which will seriously rock your world. I make it all summer love to put it on spinach and strawberry salad or a spinach, pine nut, and mandarin orange salad.

is it the silken tofu or the firm stuff? i've bought the wrong kind before and it had bad results!

Sounds interesting. I don't think my hubs would eat it. Unless I didn't mention the tofu. I may give it a whirl :)

I agree with Becca.... I'd probably have to trick my husband into eating it, but keep the healthy recipes coming! I love trying to cook new things!

Hmm...I'll have to try that. I grew up on tofu and was a vegetarian for about 2 years so it was a huge part of my diet. I love trying new recipes!

Hello. Saw your post on BEB. I'm so happy with your direct and educated answer to her earlier post. By the way I love tofu. I'm a vegetarian 4 months and counting. I'm always looking for a new tofu recipe. Can't wait to try this one out! Thanks again.
