Tofu-Carrot Ginger Dressing with Miso

Photo: Karry Hosford
Yield 1 1/4 cups (serving size: 2 tablespoons)
Similar to the dressing served on iceberg lettuce in Japanese restaurants, this is equally good on salads and as a marinade. Any silken tofu will work in this recipe and provide a smooth consistency.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup grated carrot
  • 1/2 cup silken tofu
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons yellow miso (soybean paste)
  • 2 teaspoons chopped peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
