½ tsp black pepper

pinch salt

Carrots, parsnips, rutabaga, cut into sticks

  1. Using a sieve, drain tofu. Put it in a food processor.
  2. Add the parsley, red pepper, onions, dressing, mustard, seasonings to the blender or food processor.
  3. Process with on/off motion to chop the ingredients coarsely and to mix them together.
