This is a California variation of the ubiquitous Middle Eastern condiment that replaces chick peas with tofu to give it a creamier texture while maintaining plenty of nutty flavor and a nice garlicky kick. At Middle Eastern restaurants the first thing on the table will usually be a bowl of hummus drizzled with olive oil (along with pita bread), though of course you can use it as a condiment for just about anything (try it with our mujaddara recipe).
