This soup packs a lot of flavor, and is very filling. It is one of my favorite tofu soups That I have created. It is simple to make and has very simple ingredients. It requires no more work than a traditional minestrone and it is more healthy for you. It is completely plant-based with the added protein of the tofu and beans.
1 pkg extra firm tofu, crumbled
1 onion, diced
1 carrot, diced
1 celery, diced
salt and pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp tomato paste
4 c. a vegan beef flavored broth
1 can white beans, drained and rinsed
1 928 oz) can diced tomatoes
1 tsp thyme
- In a large heavy pot add either coconut oil or water to the pan and bring the heat to medium. Add the crumbled tofu and cook while stirring until the tofu turns a golden brown. Add the onion, carrot, celery, salt, pepper, and thyme. Add more water if needed to prevent burning or sticking. Cook for about 10 minutes or until the vegetables are slightly tender.
- Add the garlic and cook for 2 minutes.
- Add the tomato paste, tomatoes, broth and beans and stir to combine so the tomato paste melts into the soup completely.
- Bring the soup to a boil and reduce heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent burning or sticking to the bottom of the pan. The vegetables should be tender when pricked with a fork. Check the seasoning and add more salt and pepper if needed. Ladle into bowls and serve.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Let me tell you a little bit about me. I am a mom of two, a stepmom of 1, two wild and silly pups, and I have the best husband in the world. I also have a love of cooking and baking. I am always in the kitchen finding new recipes to try, recreating old family recipes, and reminiscing about the old ways. I am vintage at heart and love all things old and cast iron. I love spending time with the family and pups and just going where life takes us.
I created my blog a few years ago with my youtube channel because I thought that If I shared a recipe, then people just might like to see just how the recipe is put together. I share all of my family recipes along with today's recipes. Whether it is old-fashioned recipes, sourdough, einkorn, desserts, sheet pan meals, or even crockpot meals, they are all absolutely delicious.
I spend hours, if not days, creating and dabbling with recipes to make sure they are the best for you and your family. All of my recipes are family tested and family-approved before they are ever posted to my blog or youtube channel.
Every now and again I will share some behind-the-scenes fun and chaos of our creations and family adventures. I hope you all stick around and join us here at The Southern Rustic and see what we cook up in my kitchen. You can find all of my social media information in the Contact/Donate OR the Social Media Accounts tab on my home page. There I have listed my Instagram pages, YouTube channel, Email, and other information so you can easily find everything in one place.
I hope that you all have a wonderful, wonderful day and I will see you soon.
