Carrot-Tofu Soup with Dill
3 votes


Here's a very tasty recipe for carrot-tofu soup with dill (if you don't like tofu (yet) and are still trying to find ways to eat more, this is a good one, you won't even know it's there). A bowl of this plus a nice salad makes a very satisfying meal. Numbers in [brackets] refer to my notes at the end of the recipe.

  • 1-1/2 pounds of carrots, peeled & sliced [1]
  • 4 cups water [2]
  • 1 teaspoon salt

How to make it:

  2. Cook over medium heat until carrots are tender, about 15 minutes.
  3. Scoop carrots and onion out of cooking water.
  4. Place in a blender or food processor.

  10. [1] I forgot to peel the carrots, and it was fine - probably more nutritious, too.
  11. [2] Vegetable broth instead of water would probably give more depth of flavor.
  12. [3] Used a whole onion instead of half.
  13. [4] The package of tofu was 12 oz. I didn't bother to take away the extra ounce-and-a-half, and it was fine. [5] 1 tablespoon fresh dill wasn't enough for my taste, I added another 1/2 Tbs or so.
  14. [6] I don't know what kind of industrial-sized food processor they mean; my Braun Multipractic,(a fairly basic, average processor, I think) wasn't nearly large enough. I wound up pureeing it in batches.
