(Vegan) Sweetcorn & Tofu Noodle Soup

Hello Beans

This recipe is for my Sweetcorn & Tofu Noodle soup. It started off as a vegetable soup but then I turned it into noodle soup towards the end to make it a little more exciting.  This may not be the best recipe for it as I made it up as I went but it tasted pretty darn good. My husband and I equally enjoyed this and I would make it again.

It’s super easy to make and tastes great.

White potatoes – 2 small/medium sized
4 Medium Carrots

Cover and leave to simmer on a medium heat for 45 minutes or until veg is soft.

Once it’s cooked. In a blender Add your nutritional yeast. Then put all of the veg from your soup into the mix with a good scoop of the liquid to help it blend better.Make it as chunky or smooth as you like. Add this back into the other mix still in the pan. Mix it all together on a low heat until blended well. Add your coriander and salt + pepper to taste.

Once your tofu is done add 2/3 of it to the soup along with your noodles and sweetcorn. Then simmer for 5 minutes.

Add any other herbs or ingredients you wish at this point and make it your own 😀 We ate ours with some tofu on top sprinkled with seeds and some warm toasty bread on the side.
