Vegetable and tofu soup

This soup was a creation of my own. I’m not quite sure what happened but I wanted something hot, something wholesome and something that would use up some of our vegetables. So I began putting things together and it turned out really yummy!


  1. 2 mugs of water
  2. Vegan stock
  3. 1/2 a bunch of broccoli
  4. 1/2 a head of a small cauliflower
  5. 2 handfuls of kale
  6. 175 of baby corn
  7. 1 handful of capers
  8. 8 cherry tomatoes
  9. 1 small tin of sweetcorn
  10. Sesame seeds
  11. 2 handfuls of cashew nuts
  12. 100g of tofu
  13. Vegan margarine


Serves 2


  • Put the water in a pan and let it boil
  • Add a cube of vegan stock
  • Once it’s dissolved let it simmer
  • Add the broccoli and cauliflower – chopped
  • After a couple of minutes, add the kale
  • Mix and add the baby corn – I cut each one in to 3 pieces
  • Add the capers and mix
  • Let the soup boil
  • After about 10 minutes add the cherry tomatoes and sweetcorn
  • Let it cook for another 5 minutes and then add a handful of sesame seeds
  • Dice the tofu and heat in a ‘dry’ frying pan
  • Add a little vegan margarine and mix
  • Add this to the soup and let it cook
  • Put the cashew nuts in the same frying pan and mix
  • Turn the heat off when they become brown – how brown you want them to be depends on you
  • Serve the soup and add the cashew nuts on top

My hubby said he could eat this at least three times a week, because it was so healthy and tasty!
