Russian Dressing With Sun-Dried Tomatoes

This thick dressing doubles beautifully as a spread over broiled tempeh and sauerkraut for a vegetarian Reuben sandwich. Add more soaking liquid if you prefer a thinner dressing.


  • 6 sun-dried tomato halves not oil-packed
  • 1/4 cup boiling water
  • 5 ounces lite silken tofu
  • 2 teaspoons prepared plain horseradish
  • 1 tablespoon catsup
  • 1 teaspoon minced shallot or onion sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • 1. In a small bowl, cover sun-dried tomatoes with boiling water and let sit until tomatoes have softened, 15-20 minutes. Remove tomatoes and chop coarsely; reserve soaking liquid.

    2. In a blender, combine tomatoes with remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides two or three times. Add soaking liquid, as needed, to achieve desired consistency.
