Drain tofu of water, wrap in a thin kitchen towel or 4 layers of cheesecloth, and squeeze to remove any excess moisture. Roughly chop and reserve.
Heat oil in a small skillet over low heat. Cook garlic 2 to 3 minutes, then cool.
In a bowl, combine tofu, Sauteed garlic, parsley, mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Mash with a fork until fine. Chill and serve as garnish on Spicy Cold Soba Noodles.
