Guiltless Garlic Dill Dip

This is an amazingly yummy dip for veggies and chips, as a spread for a sandwich, or a replacement for sour cream on almost anything!

1 package silken tofu
6 small cloves garlic
1/3 cup mayonnaise (use veganaise if desired)
2 tbsp lemon or lime juice
1/2 - 1 tsp salt, depending on your taste
1 large bunch fresh dill, stems removed, roughly chopped

In a food processor, chop garlic. Put tofu, mayonnaise, lemon juice, and dill into the food processor bowl with the garlic. Blend constantly for about 1 minute or until mixture is very smooth. Add 1/2 tsp salt, blend again for 30 seconds or so, taste, and correct seasoning as desired. Scrape into covered bowl and refrigerate at least 1 hour before serving. The flavor will intensify upon refrigeration. Serve with cut vegetables such as carrots, broccoli, cucumbers, or celery. Or, serve on a sandwich with spinach, portobello mushrooms, and roasted red peppers.
