My husband is very much a ‘meat and potatoes’ kind of guy. He has been pretty tolerant, letting me try at least one new ‘healthy’ dinner for the family each week. But he doesn’t ever want to try tofu. I understand. That’s why when I made this wonderful Creamy Mustard Dill Sauce, I didn’t exactly correct him when he assumed that it was a cream based sauce. But it is DELICIOUS! I served it over baked salmon and steamed asparagus, with wild rice on the side. Not even my pickiest eater complained. And this was so easy! I like that the wonderful creamy texture the silken tofu gives the sauce without the worry of curdling like with most cream based sauces. Shhh, don’t tell my husband and kids the secret ingredient.

* 4 oz silken tofu
* 1 TBS prepared mustard such as Dijon
* 4 TBS fresh dill chopped
* 1 TBS honey
* 2 TBS fresh lemon juice
* 1/2 cup water
* 1/4 tsp salt
* 1/4 tsp white pepper
* 2 TBS extra virgin olive oil

Directions:
Put everything except olive oil in the blender and begin to blend on high speed for about one minute. While the blender is running, drizzle olive oil in a little at a time. Pour over vegetables, fish, everything.! Delicious!

This recipe came from a newsletter from this website World’s Healthiest Foods. I don’t necessarily agree with the amounts of meat and dairy that he encourages here, but it is a good source for some healthier ways to cook.
