1 tablespoon agave syrup
3-4 tablespoons water ( add accordingly to your favorite consistency)
Crumble the tofu, add peanut butter and agave syrup and blend (or grind) until creamy and smooth, add water by the spoonful for the desire thickness.
Carrots, string beans, spinach (lightly boiled)
Fresh cucumbers, carrots, celery ( for dips)
Vegetables and Seaweed with Tofu Cream
(carrots, string beans, and hijiki-seaweed)
vegetables and hijiki were simmered with a bit of soy-sauce and
DASHI or Japanese broth

A pinch of salt may enhance the flavor.
