  1. 1 head garlic
  2. 5 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  3. 1/2 cup silken tofu (4 1/2 ounces)
  4. 1 tablespoon lemon juice, or to taste
  5. 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  6. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  7. 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Place the head of garlic on a piece of foil, drizzle with 1 teaspoon oil and wrap into a package. Roast directly on the oven rack until the cloves are soft, 30 to 40 minutes.
  3. Squeeze the roasted garlic into a blender or food processor. Add the remaining 4 1/2 teaspoons oil, tofu, lemon juice, paprika, salt and cayenne. Puree until smooth, scraping down the sides of the bowl once or twice, if necessary. Transfer to a small bowl.
