 Tofu Potato Salad with Dill
    slightly adapted from the Vegetarian Times
 5 large potatoes                     1/2 tsp. salt
 10 oz. soft (MoriNu) lite tofu       2 to 3 cloves garlic, minced
 Water for steaming                   4 Tbs. fresh dill weed 
 2 to 3 Tbs. brown rice vinegar         (or 1-1/2 Tbs dried dill)
    or lemon juice                    Water if needed for blending
 2 tsp. low-sodium tamari             4 stalks celery, minced
 2 tsp. prepared mustard              1/2 cup minced fresh parsley
 Bake, boil, microwave, or pressure cook potatoes until tender.
 Run under cold water to remove skins.  Chill.
 Meanwhile, steam tofu for 10 minutes.  While tofu is cooking, place 
 rice vinegar (lemon juice), oil (if desired), tamari, mustard, salt 
 and garlic in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
 Drain tofu, crumble and add to blender or food processor along with 
 dill.  Blend until smooth and creamy.  You may need to add a few 
 tablespoons of water (up to 1/4 cup) depending on how soft the tofu 
 is and how well your blender purees.  You will want it a little "loose" 
 and liquidy, as the potatoes will absorb some of the moisture.
 Chop chilled potatoes into 1-inch cubes and place in a large mixing 
 bowl.  Pour tofu mixture on top of potatoes and mix, evenly coating 
 potatoes.  Stir in celery and parsley.  Be careful not to mash 
 potatoes as you mix.  Makes 6 side-dish servings.
