Protein Packed Dip Two Ways - Shhh it's made with tofu!

We have another nourishing appetizer to munch on this holiday season!

A colorful veggie platter is the perfect appetizer to make your holiday spread look festive and fresh. Plain, raw veggies don't always sound as enticing as other options, which is why traditionally they are served with high calorie, high fat dips. So what to do? We have a solution!

We have created a high protein, low fat alternative with the secret ingredient being tofu! We know, it might sound weird, but trust us - its amazing! Tofu is bland on its own which allows it to soak up other flavors while providing plant-based sustenance from soy protein. Your guests will never know this dip is made with tofu, but we guarantee they will be going back for seconds!

Bonus Tip: You can thin out these dips with a little bit of water to make a protein-packed salad dressing! If you have leftovers (doubtful) the next day, thin it down and toss with greens and grains for a filling, easy lunch!
