VEGAN CLAM DIP--Lynne Snyder

When we were Vegan two of our boys "stole" the Vegan Clam Dip and barricaded themselves in a bedroom with a bag of chips. They thought they had the "real" non-vegan version. They practically ate the whole batch before coming out. When we told them they blustered and stammered but they had been caught--they couldn't tell the difference!

1 (8 oz.) pkg. Tofutti Better than Cream Cheese
½ cup soy milk
1 Tbs. A-1 steak sauce
1 Tbs. Braggs Liquid Aminos
¼ tsp. garlic powder
¼ tsp. onion powder
1/8 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
½ cup dry Chicken TVP (or plain TVP or seafood TVP if you can find it)
additional soy milk if needed

Blend everything (except TVP) together well; then add TVP. It will take about 15 minutes for the TVP to re-hydrate and the dip to thicken (if it gets too thick add more soymilk, a few drops at a time). Serve with fresh vegetables and chips.
