Cabbage and Tofu Soup

Recipe by Hadice

Another great vegetarian soup. Hint: Using vegetable soup instead of water will give this soup a richer flavor.

Top Review by Ami H.

This recipe is quite nice, both the missionaries and my family enjoyed it. However, it should be noted that this is not a soup which you can judge by tasting while cooking it. The ingredients need time to soak in order for the various flavors to take full affect. I tried a spoonful after putting everything together and found the soup sharp and bland. However, after setting it in the fridge overnight, (I like to prepare my meals the day before), I woke up the next morning to a comforting and savory soup. My family likes garlic, so I put in two teaspoons of minced garlic, but this is completely optional and I wouldn't put in too much. All in all, everything was great, but a large pot is necessary. Stay heart healthy everyone!
