  • 2 tbsp lemon juice

Peel the garlic and onion and cut into thin slices. Heat up ½ tbsp olive oil in a pot, add garlic and onion and fry. Pour in white wine, bring to the boil and put the mixture into a blender.

Drain tuna well. In a saucepan, heat another ½ tbsp olive oil, add the tuna and sauté until the tuna is "dry". Add 2 tbsp Kikkoman soy sauce and fry briefly. Put the mixture on a plate and let it cool down.

Add the tuna mixture to the onion-garlic mixture in the blender. Add well drained tofu, remaining Kikkoman soy sauce, remaining olive oil, lemon juice and honey and blend to a puree. Add parmesan, capers, salt and pepper, stir and serve the dip.
