Recipe For Vegan Corn Dip With Tomatoes and Basil

Creamy Corn Dip With Tomatoes . . . and It's Vegan

I scream, you scream, we all scream for lycopene! It's important to load up on this powerful antioxidant found in tomatoes that fights cancer and heart disease. Also high in folate, vitamin C, and potassium, tomatoes are sweet and juicy; they taste like Summer. Here's a summery dip featuring cherry tomatoes with tofu to add protein and a creamy texture. The corn kernels add fiber and sweetness.

High Protein Vegan Corn Dip With Tomatoes and Basil

Ingredients

1 3/4 cups fresh corn kernels (from two ears) or frozen kernels
1/3 cup plain soymilk
1/3 cup tofu (I used super extra firm)
Juice from half a lime
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt
Freshly ground pepper
8 cherry tomatoes, quartered, or 2 medium tomatoes, coarsely chopped
1/3 cup fresh basil leaves, thinly sliced

Directions

  1. Cook corn and soymilk in a skillet over medium-high heat until corn is tender, seven to nine minutes. Let cool completely.
  2. Puree 2/3 cup corn mixture, the tofu, lime juice, and salt in a food processor. Season with pepper. Transfer to a serving bowl, and stir in remaining corn mixture, the tomatoes, and basil. Serve with chips. Dip can be refrigerated in an airtight container up to one day.

Makes six servings.

Don't knock it till you try it! The main flavors are tomatoes and basil, and you hardly taste the small amount of tofu. It's honestly really good, and I'm not even vegan!

I hate saying this, but that looks super disgusting. It looks like the recipes my mom would send me when I first went vegan.
