Tofu Tahini Spread

Recipes / Spreads

Based on a recipe from Moosewood Restaurant Cooks at Home by the Moosewood Collective.

Makes 2 cups.

  • 1 cake firm tofu (3/4 pound)
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 tablespoon miso (I use light)
  • 1-2 teaspoons soy sauce
  • 2 scallions, minced
  • 1 carrot, grated
  • ground black pepper to taste

Using a potato masher or food processor, mix the tofu with the tahini, miso, and 1 teaspoon of the soy sauce until well blended. Stir the scallions and carrots into the tofu mixture. Add black pepper and more soy sauce to taste.


I don't love the flavor of this just on crackers, but it does make a nice sandwich with veggies. Extra firm tofu also worked fine.
