      Mmm...I'm really loving this soup. It seems like a lot of steps, but each one is quick and you have time while the tofu is in the oven to do other things. My favourite part was the tofu just out of the oven, that part was ridiculously easy and so delicious, I'll use that on other things. The broth was also fantastic, so tasty for really little could convert you from store bought stocks that's for sure. I made half the batch to just cover us for one meal, but now I'm wishing I had not halved the broth - everyone is asking for more broth. No complaints from the table about there being kale in the soup, that itself is amazing!!
