The Good News To create this tasty dip, Lee Anne Wong blends soft or silken tofu (which has an especially custardy texture) with high-potassium avocado and a little bit of low-fat sour cream and yogurt. For extra fiber, she serves the dip with raw vegetables and rosemary whole wheat pita chips.

  1. 4 whole wheat pitas, split
  2. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 1 tablespoon chopped rosemary
  4. Salt
  5. 7 ounces soft or silken tofu, drained
  6. 1 Hass avocado—peeled, pitted and coarsely chopped
  7. 1/4 cup low-fat sour cream
  8. 1/4 cup Greek-style, fat-free yogurt
  9. 1 teaspoon finely grated lime zest
  10. 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  11. 1 garlic clove
  12. 1 1/2 teaspoons honey
  13. 1 teaspoon curry powder
  14. 2 tablespoons chopped mint
  15. Freshly ground pepper
  16. Grape tomatoes, cucumber slices and radishes for serving
  1. Preheat the oven to 325°. Stack the pita halves and cut them into 6 wedges; transfer to a bowl and add the olive oil and rosemary. Season with salt and toss. Spread the pita wedges on a baking sheet in a single layer and bake until crisp, 30 minutes. Let cool.
  2. Meanwhile, in a food processor, puree the tofu, avocado, sour cream, yogurt, lime zest, lime juice, garlic, honey, curry powder and mint until smooth. Season the dip with salt and pepper and refrigerate until chilled. Serve the dip with the pita chips, tomatoes, cucumbers and radishes.
