“This recipe is a lot tastier than it sounds! You can't tell it contains tofu, and it can be made low-carb and/or vegan by your choice of ingredients (some good low-carb vegetables to try are mushrooms, cauliflower, and spinach). It's also infinitely variable by changing the spices and veggies. Delicious and high-protein, it's a light meal in itself.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute celery & onion in butter or oil over medium-low heat, until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, discard liquid from tofu package and place tofu in blender along with cooked vegetables, 2 cups of broth, and cheese or yeast flakes.
  3. Blend tofu mixture until smooth.
  4. Add garlic to pan with celery and saute another 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool a minute or two.
