Chunky Bean Spread

Delicious on fresh whole-grain or rye bread, you can use leftovers of this tasty spread as a dip for tortilla chips. If using as a dip, thin the consistency with a bit of water if necessary.

Tofu Dips

Hints: For a spicy dip, use Taco Seasoning Mix made by Bearitos or Hain. For a delicious French Onion Dip, use the one made by Simply Organic. Simply Organic makes a delicious Dill Dip also, as well as several others, including a Southwest Taco. Other packaged mixes may be available in your local natural food stores. Read the labels carefully for healthy ingredients with no added oils or animal products.
