So good!!! And so easy! I think this is something I want to have on hand in my fridge. I think the kids would love this too!
Oh my goodness. I took one bite of this and emphatically pronounced it to be my new favorite food. Incredibly tasty. Mind-bogglingly delicious. Great work y'all!
Hello my dear PUL-Family, I hope you are well :) Could you again make more of the spreads that you can smear so for breakfast or evening on bread? Gladly also with vegan feta :) I wish you a relaxing week you dear. Your Patrick from Germany
Love this recipe 🏼💗
This has become a staple in our home! Thank you!
This recipe is so easy and we love to make the spread in bulk and use it throughout the week. We use it on anything from toasts to sandwiches and it is honestly the best! I would highly recommend this to anyone who is lazy like me :)
This recipe is AMAZING. I have a hard time eating in the morning, everything makes me sick. But this cream cheese is the only thing that can eat and it tastes so good. I eat it every day before going to school. No more boring plain toast mornings. It's also great for Sunday dinners, making a toast with tomatoes slices and olive oil, or spreading on a tortilla with vegetables, along with a soup... perfection.
It's not just me, my entire family devours it. I have to do a big batch to last through the week.
Really great recipe that's customizable. I added dried rubbed mint and dried dill into my mixture and it was wonderful. I'd make this again if I have some leftover tofu on hand!
I just made this and I had it on toast and it was really tasty. Its nice to have something different from hummus. My only slight recommendation is that if you live in the UK and use the Tofoo brand it is a little dry so I had to add a little plant milk. Other than that it was a really easy recipe to make.
Sorry, I wasn't wowed by it.
For the amount of effort, taste and nutritional value, I'm sticking to hummus as my toast spread.
I will note, when you click on your link for small food processor, I recommend using the hand blender over the little food processor as the ingredients don't blend well, and you end up having to open FP and mush it down repeatedly.
Oh. My. God. This is the most delicious thing I’ve ever tasted!! I topped one slice with a lemon flavored olive oil and the other with a blackberry balsamic vinaigrette, it really topped off such a wonderful meal! Thank you for this recipe it’s going to be a forever favorite for me!
The most delicious "cheese" ever!
This was so good! Simple way to get protein. This would be wonderful on crackers, as a dip and stuffed into celery, cherry tomatoes, jalapeno and baby sweet peppers for appetizers. So glad I tried it. Thanks for the recipe 😊 xo
Love the garlic flavor it has, so tastey!
I love this recipe! I already made the cream cheese from this recipe multiple times and had it with some pickles but this morning I finally prepared the whole thing with toasted bun and tomato. It was really delicious and the recommended toppings took it to another level. I can't recommend this recipe enough, it's that great!
Hi there! So I made this without nutritional yeast and onion powder, and instead of apple cider vinegar I used lemon juice. Moreover, I do not have a food processor, so I mashed it all best I could using a fork - and guess what? It turned out really tasty! I am so positively impressed! The tofu spreads they sell in vegan section of grocery stores usually taste much worse and are much more expensive. I ate it on a toast with cherry tomatoes along with your simple lentil soup. It made an excellent dinner.
The dip is delicious!! I quadrupled this recipe so that I could use my entire block of tofu and am so glad that I did! I've been spreading into onto open faced sandwiches as part of my lunch. Thank you so much for another amazing recipe!
Hi! Would it be better to use a electric mixer or blender instead of the food processor? Or do I need one of those?
This is so amazing! And everyone should try it.
I was a bit nervous about how the tofu would taste but it turned out so delicious.
In addition to the tomatoes, I topped mine with some homemade pickled radishes and pickled onions ( which I followed the PUL recipe for!), some red pepper flakes and shaved truffles.
Please try this!! My first bite was like a dream.
Thank you so so much for this amazing recipe idea! I’ll happily be eating this everyday for the rest of the week (or month 😁)
Awesome, great quick savory idea!
Ok I wanna start off by saying I was very skeptical about this one but I had to try it. Oh my god its delicious. As a cream cheese LOVER it's hard to give it up but I have pretty bad "lack toes in toddler ants" 💩 But this is really good we made it last night and I've already eaten on it 3 times.
Can I substitute the apple cider vinegar for lemon juice or something else? I don't have it and I don't want to buy it since I dont use it much
This recipe is incredibly tasty! The consistency is so smooth and creamy. We love to serve it with crispbread and sun-dried tomatoes :) Thank you!
Was so pleasantly surprised with this one! I love how the texture of the spread looked like cream cheese and the flavours tasted better than cream cheese. My non-vegan husband absolutely loved it. Will definitely be making this again and again!
Absolutely incredible PUL team!! I love your Herby Garlic Cream 'Cheese' and I wasn't sure if anything could measure up but this proved to be just as good! 🙌🏻💯 I loved the combination of the whipped tofu with the tomatoes, basil, salt and pepper and I can't wait to make it all again. 🤗
Wow, this was so creamy and delicious! I just had a friend over for coffee and these toasts on the patio, she was impressed it’s vegan and loved it as well.
The most delicious vegan spread ever made! I was running out of savory breakfast ideas and now I’ll probably be having this every single morning, thank you so much!
This was wonderfully delicious! I was skeptical about tofu cream cheese since I usually make a nut based one but was pleased with this much lower fat and cheaper version. I scaled up the recipe for a full brick of tofu and substituted tahini instead of oil, for an oil free version. I will definitely make it again. It’s such and quick and easy meal and everyone who ate it loved it too! Thanks! :)
This was incredible! I added a few tablespoons of Greek yogurt to help with texture since I only had extra firm tofu, and it was delicious!! Love the tomato on top as well - adds the perfect amount of sweetness to go with the savory spread.
Absolutely a game changer. In greece we have a feta dip which is basically mushed feta with some cream cheese and a spicy pepper. It reminded me of that very much. We have a variation with red pepper, which adds some sweetness that goes perfectly with the saltiness. I did the same here. In the batch for 4 I added 2 roasted red peppers and some cayenne pepper and I almost had a second dinner just by tasting again and again. Thanks so much, you make vegan cuisine look effortlessly delicious.
Best cream cheese toast I’ve ever had!!!!
Delicious recipe! I ate mine with roasted beets 😋
This is absolutely deliciouss OMG! The moment I saw this recipe I knew i must try it because I don't usually like buying vegan cream cheese from the grocery store or sometimes i run out of it but this is a game changer! I never thought cream cheese could come out of tofu. I just made mine and they turned out so good but a little moist but that's okay. Thank you for making breakfast not so boring :)
Thank you, for the tofu cream cheese spread. I made it today and right now it is in the fridge for the ingredients to combine. I tasted it already of course, I love it.
This will go nicely with my home-made sourdough bread. I would love to get more ideas like this. Healthier and cheaper than store bought products! :)
Seriously!This is the best vegan cream cheese I have ever had.Literally took less than 10 minutes to make this breakfast dish.Thanks,PUL and team.
This was sooooo satisfying! It will be a new staple for me. Thanks!
Thank you! Delicious 😋
We got vegan cream cheese in the grocery store but it was not good. Not horrible. But not wow. This is WOW. Thank you!
Yet another comment. I am vegan and Sadia has been such a help in making this journey a tasty one. The cream "cheese" in this one is delicious!! I just made it and the combination with the tomato is on another level. Thank you again for the variety of recipes! I will be trying another recipe this afternoon for lunch
I made this for breakfast today with fresh sourdough bread and tomatoes from the garden. So good! And my toddler loved it as well! :-)
I made this tonight for tomorrow’s breakfast, but it is so good we’re eating it for dinner with fresh tomatoes and a salad on the side! Can’t want to have the left overs for breakfast in the morning!
Also my toddler loves it! :)
Onion powder and garlic powder isn't (as far as I know!) very commonly used here in Denmark. I could probably get some if I searched for it, but I was just wondering if I could swap it for the fresh ingredients instead? And if yes, would it interfere with the longevity of it? Thanks in advance - love your youtube video and website, super excited to get the app when it's ready!
Oh that’s so good and easy
easy and delicious
Tried this today for lunch, it was quick & easy to make and tasted delicious!! I wanted to use a whole block of tofu and the scaling feature made this super easy. Love the new website :)
Pickle juice and dill/garlic bits from a jar of pickles gets this recipe most of the way there. Thanks for the inspiration!
