Cooking Time



  • 15 ounces (whole container) of extra firm tofu
  • 4 tablespoons Coconut Butter
  • 7 teaspoons fresh lemon juice (one large lemon or two smaller lemons will do)
  • 1/2 teaspoons white vinegar or apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon date sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder


  1. Place the tofu block in a cheesecloth or kitchen towel and squeeze all the water out.  Once you think you're done, squeeze it three more times.
  2. Put the tofu in your blender with the rest of the ingredients and blend on high for at least five minutes (pause and scrape sides down intermittently for the smoothest end result).
  3. Put in an airtight container and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  4. It's now ready to spread on them bagels, and if you don't finish it all it will keep in the fridge for up to a week, maybe more?  However, you can just give it the old sniff test if you're unsure.
