The bright, beautiful orange color of this scrumptious soup is just one of the many appealing perks. It features antioxidant-rich tomatoes and carrots, and it gets its creaminess from protein-rich tofu instead of milk or cream, which makes it a dairy-free delight. You can enjoy a bowl (or two) for lunch along with a satisfying salad, as an appetizer, or as dinner paired with its famous partner, grilled cheese. Who’s ready to slurp up this eye-catching, palate-pleasing bowl?

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 8 cups
  • • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • • 1 medium onion, diced
  • • 2 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
  • • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • • 3 tablespoons no-salt-added tomato paste
  • • 1 can (28 ounces) diced fire-roasted tomatoes
  • • 8 ounces tofu (silken, firm or extra-firm), drained and cut into large cubes
  • • Salt, to taste
  • • Ground black pepper, to taste

Heat the olive oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots, and garlic and sauté until vegetables are tender, about 8 minutes. Add the tomato paste and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.

Add the canned tomatoes. Fill the empty tomato can with water and pour the water into pot. Bring the soup to a boil, cover the pot, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in the tofu and simmer, uncovered, for 15 more minutes.

Puree the soup in small batches in a blender until completely smooth. (Alternatively, use an immersion blender to puree the soup directly in the pot.) Season with salt and black pepper.
