Creamy vegan green goddess dressing that's casually healthy thanks to being made of tofu! But seriously, you wouldn't know. This is an herb-forward dressing that's perfect for spring! If you're not familiar with tarragon, it has a gentle licorice-like flavor, like a more mild fennel or anise.
4green onionssliced (both the green and white parts)
1/4cuploosely-packed fresh basil(optional)
Open the package of tofu and drain the excess liquid. Add the tofu, garlic powder, salt, pepper, lemon juice, and mustard to a blender or food processor and run until completely smooth.
Add the rest of the ingredients and run for another 10-15 seconds or until the herbs are mostly combined. (I like to have some little chunky green pieces, but you can blend it to your preference.)
Season to taste with additional salt, pepper, mustard and lemon.
SILKEN TOFU: Silken tofu is often sold in a shelf-stable, cardboard package. A common brand is Mori-Nu. Sometimes it is sold water-packed and refrigerated like "regular" tofu (aka cotton tofu). Only use silken tofu for this recipe; cotton tofu is too grainy and has more excess liquid that needs to be pressed out.
