Soy-Wasabi Spread

Tofu and soy beans are rich in heart-friendly isoflavones; blended together, they give a wasabi-tinged spread plenty of creaminess, but little fat. Serve this spicy spread with rice crackers as an hors d'oeuvre; garnish with black sesame seeds for more Asian flavor. The spread also makes a good dip for cucumber and carrot sticks.
