I doubled the tomatoes and onion cooked in garlic olive oil. I added 16 oz of soft tofu and a can of Progresso cream of tomato soup and mixed it all with an emulsion blender. The texture was weird so I put it in batches through a sieve. Then it was good! Thanks for the recipe. Read More

You'd never believe this was vegetarian if you didn't see it being made. So tasty! Personally I like to add some diced garlic (about 1 or 2 cloves) to the sauteing onions and tomato and chopped basil to the soup when I pour in the tofu mixture (rather than just as a garnish). I'm also slightly lazy so I substitute an equivalent amount of no-salt-added canned diced tomatoes and use the reserved juice from the cans in place of the water. Keep in mind - this will thicken upon standing so if you're making extra to put in the fridge you may need to add a bit of tomato juice or water when you reheat it. Read More

SO GOOD! and so easy. I used the Low sodium condensed soup and added garlic and spinach to the sautee and replaced scallions for onions out of convenience. Next time I'll loose the spinach but this stuff went quick! Read More
