recently, thru the Daring Bakers, i came across a blogger who made a tofu spread/dip for her lavash crackers. i didn't exactly follow her recipe (i didn't have all the ingredients handy) but her dip inspired me. i've been trying very hard this year to eat something for breakfast everyday. i figured toast would be great with this tofu spread, carbs and protein and veggies! i only used half the container(there is only one of me who would eat this...) for the other half, i made a chocolate pudding.
Veggie Tofu Spread
adapted and inspired by Shelby of The Life and Loves of Grumpy's Honeybunch
half container of soft tofu
1 small shallot, minced
1 stalk of celery, thinly chopped
salt/pepper to taste
blend together until smooth. had i had more stuff on hand: tomatoes, chive, carrots, olives etc, i would've added them too. it reminded me of homemade veggie cream cheese and on toasted bread it's really tasty.
the chocolate tofu pudding is just like how i made Madonna's Chocolate Tofu Pie, except sans the crust. just a sweet treat snack. a spoonful or two is just enough for me.
i know i'm not the only one who has to scramble sometimes with just-about-to-rot food in the fridge. what do you do when you've got a bunch of stuff just at their prime and you're uninspired?

i know i sound like a broken record but it is for a good cause. it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month, (it's also National Blogger's Month too). i know that Charlotte, NC is having their walk this weekend and Baltimore is doing theirs on the 19th. if you can't participate in the walk, bake for the Boob Off. you can read about it here.
