Pine nut crema is from Terry Hope Romano’s excellent book, Viva Vegan! This aromatic sauce is just the thing to soothe your tongue when paired with a spicy dish.
Gather your ingredients! The pine nuts are particularly important for this recipe. Like cashews, pine nuts will give a creamy texture when blended, but they have a unique flavor. They taste rather like a forest smells!
Drain the tofu (but do not press). Add everything to your food processor or blender.
Cover and blend until the sauce is smooth and creamy. The pine nuts should be totally pulverized.
Pair this sauce with a spicy dish. You can spoon it on top of casseroles before baking, or use it as a cold dip for buffalo bites. Enjoy!
