Smokey Tofu Spread with Sage

This spread was part of our May Day picnic. It gets its deep flavor from liquid smoke and fresh sage, and goes especially well with a bread that has a lot of flavor of its own – like the dried Finnish sour rye bread pictured below.

The recipe is very easy and quick to make, but the flavor is at its best after a night in the fridge. If refrigerated and stored in an airtight container, this should keep for about one week.

Here’s what I used:

  • 300 g firm tofu
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 1 teaspoon smooth peanut butter
  • 1/2 dl canola oil
  • 1/2 dl water
  • 2 teaspoons agave syrup
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons light soy sauce
  • 12 fresh sage leaves
  • juice of 1/2 lemon

I just blended everything except for the lemon juice and salt in our mini food processor until smooth. Now, I added the salt and the lemon juice a little by little, until the balance was right. Then I refrigerated the spread overnight – the flavors developed and the texture firmed up quite nicely.
