Creamy Tomato Tofu Soup

This tomato soup is my trusted fail-proof recipe that never disappoints. I first had at my Mother-in-Law’s and have been cooking it ever since. The original recipe did not have tofu, but since this soup is a staple with my children, I added tofu for more nutritional value.

Yummy Tomato and Tofu Soup

I like add to add a bit of cooked pasta or rice when serving it, so it becomes a full meal for my kids.

Notes :

  • Β I use homemade chicken stock for most of my soups (I usually cook a bit batch and freeze it), but low sodium store-bought one is a perfect substitute. Vegetable broth will work beautifully for a vegetarian version of this soup
  • I like to buy whole seasoned canned tomatoes as they have a hint of flavour (Italian seasoning)
  • This recipe requires a very handy kitchen tool: a blender. I use an immersion (AKA stick one), but regular blender will do the trick, you just have to be careful about handling hot liquid.

The ingredients (6-8 servings):

  • 1 can of seasoned whole tomatoes (796 ml)
  • 3 cups chicken or vegetableΒ broth
  • 3-4 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 package silken tofu
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

The steps:

  1. Mix canned tomatoes and broth in a medium pot
  2. Bring to boil over medium heat
  3. Add potatoes and bring to a boil again
  4. Lower the heat slightly and cover the pot with a lid (leave bit of space between the pot and the lid to let the heat escape)
  5. Cook until potatoes are fully done and tender when you pierce them with a fork (30-45 minutes)
  6. Remove from heat and add tofu
  7. Puree with a blender until smooth
  8. Put the soup back on the stove and set the heat to medium low
  9. Add cream and gently reheat until almost boiling
  10. Serve with a slice of fresh bread or a bit of cooked pasta or rice
  11. I had a lot of fun with my Boomerang app this time around πŸ™‚
