    1. Hi girls can we substitute tofu for something else thx
      Love your recipes

      • Hi Lucille, you can substitute the tofu for avocado or rinsed and drained cannellini white beans. Or, you might enjoy our chocolate hummus that is made with white beans. You can’t taste the white beans and it is super delicious, as well. If you use the white beans, you might need to add some almond milk or milk of your choice to make it a thinner consistency. I hope you enjoy! Thank you so much for your support!
