Just like cheese! Vegan tofu cream

So delicious that you'll think to yourself, "Is it really tofu!?" Shiitake mushrooms are the special ingredient in this just-like-cream-cheese tofu dip. The trick is to remove the water from the tofu completely!! Make it nice and creamy with a food processor. Enjoy as a canape, in a sandwich, or as a dip with bread. It can also be enjoyed as an alternative to mayonnaise. Tips and tricks: Adding a little water to Shiitake powder and waiting 10 minutes before using, maximizes 3x the Umami Flavor!

Guanylate amplifies the Umami taste of all foods. Zen monks found Forest-grown Shiitake is the best Umami enhancer for Vegan Cuisine more than 1000-years ago in Japan.
