Creamy Roasted Garlic Dressing
This rich and creamy dressing works well in any situation where you might use a ranch-style dressing.
1 head of garlic (about 3-1/2 ounces)
15 ounces firm low-fat silken tofu
1-1/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon flaxseed oil or dark sesame oil
3/4 teaspoon salt
- Preheat the oven to 400°F. Wrap the garlic in foil, place on a baking sheet, and bake until the foil package feels soft to the touch, about 30 minutes.
- When cool enough to handle, unwrap, slice off one end of the garlic head, and squeeze the garlic pulp into a blender or food processor.
- Add the tofu, lemon zest, lemon juice, flaxseed oil, and salt, and process until smooth. Store the dressing in the refrigerator.
