Spring Pea & Tofu Dip

Spring peas and tofu combine quickly in a food processor with mint and scallions for a colorful, protein-packed dip. Serve with fresh cut vegetables, tortilla or pita chips, assorted crackers, and/or toasted bread points for dipping and spreading this luscious dip. Scallions add a nice pop of freshness as a garnish and bring our the silky flavors of the tofu and the sweet spring peas.
