Lemony Cream Icing

Date tried: February 6, 2018
Yield: about 2 cups
Time needed: about 5 minutes + 2 hours to chill

The recipe calls for a firm tofu, but I wonder if it might not be creamier with a softer one. The taste is not overly sweet as many sugar-based icings are, but the soybean flavour tends to come through. Still it was excellent on a lemon cake.

Spinach Dill Dip

Yield: 3 cups
Time needed: 25 minutes

I have never come across a dip like this and I am still not sure if I love it or hate it. It is an insight on how to make a dip without sour cream. Most of the time goes into prepping the vegetables for the food processor. Once everything is peeled, quartered, crushed, chopped, and grated, it takes only a few minutes to combine. But remember to allow an hour to chill the finished product before serving.
