Thoroughly drain the moisture from the tofu. I usually microwave it for 1-2 minutes and then wrap it in a paper towel, followed by a newspaper, and then I place something heavy on top.
Put all of the ingredients into a food processor and blend until the garlic is no longer grainy. Then it's done!
Tahini is a type of sesame paste used in the Middle East. I think it's somewhat lighter than Japanese sesame paste. If you don't want it to taste too much like sesame, then decrease the amount of sesame paste used.
Story Behind this Recipe
I made some falafel with soy beans, so I started thinking, couldn't I make hummus with soy beans too? Then I made it with tofu! If you make it this way, it's easy to make even in Japan.
Please use this hummus dip with soybean falafel. You can use it as a dip not only for falafel, but also for various other things.
