Author Notes

I train for swimming two hours a day, six sessions a week. When I get home, I'm more than a little hungry - and this is one of my go-to things to eat. Not only is it nutritious and filling, it's yummy enough to serve at, say, a dinner party without them even realizing it's the same thing you stuff into your mouth greedily at 9:45pm every other night of the week. The avo-coriander dip is delicious on it's own, but when i first made this i only had about a teaspoon left from making it earlier in the week, and the tofu added a welcome protein hit. —Lucy

What You'll Need
  • Avocado-Coriander Dip
  • 1/2 a ripe Avocado
  • 1/2 cup lightly packed fresh coriander leaves
  • juice of one lime (or to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • Olive oil as needed
  • The Rest (Rye Bread, assembly, ect)
  • 2 pieces Danish Rye Bread (this varies in size, the slices i get are about palm-sized)
  • 1/2 packet silken tofu (approx. just over 1/2 cup)
  • All of your avocado-coriander dip
  • 1 handful Roughly chopped walnuts
  • 2 large tomatoes, thinly sliced
  1. Avocado-Coriander Dip
  2. Put all ingredients besides oil in a blender and blend until smooth. Add oil only if needed - if your avocado is ripe enough, you should be ok. For me, lime is more important than salt in this, but like in the case of hummus, everyone to their own; feel free to add or reduce salt and lime as you please, just remember this taste is going to be toned down a little by the tofu later on, so stronger is better than weaker!
  1. The Rest (Rye Bread, assembly, ect)
  2. Blend your silken tofu until smooth, then add your avocado dip and blend until combined. Taste and adjust seasoning - if it's too strong, just add more tofu, but I prefer mine strong as the Rye bread also has a distinctive flavour.
  3. Spread this tofu mix on your Rye Bread - be generous! Sprinkle with the walnuts, top with the slices of tomato and serve.
