1 Tbsp. Tamari (soy) sauce
2/3 c Natural style peanut butter

A little fatty but great in a sandwich with cucumber slices!
Puree the tofu and tamari into a smooth thick paste. Transfer into a bowl.
With a fork, vigorously beat in all remaining ingredients. Or, just toss everything into the blender and forget the fork!
