Brussels Sprout Soup with Tofu Topping
The story behind the recipe
As I already mentioned in my recipe “Roasted Brussels Sprouts”, I am a huge fan of Brussels sprouts! They are my favourite autumn and winter veggies because you can eat them in every form and they just taste great.
This soup is perfect when you want a light dish in the evening. It’s also quite easy to make, doesn’t need many ingredients and still tastes great. The tofu topping is meant to imitate ham cubes, rounding up the dish perfectly.
What do you need?
- 500 g Brussels sprouts
- 200 g potatoes (about one big potato)
- 2 onions
- 200 g (smoked) tofu
- 150 ml (plant) cream for cooking
- 0.5 L veggie broth
- some oil
- pepper, salt, nutmeg
How do you make it?
- Peel the Brussels sprouts and cut them in half. Also, peel and cut the potatoes and onions.
- Gently roast the onions in a pot with some oil. Add the potatoes and 3/4 of the Brussels sprouts as well as the veggie broth. Let it cook for about 20 minutes.
- In the meantime, you can make the topping. Cut the tofu in small cubes and roast them in a pan on high heat with lots of oil. When they have taken a brown-ish colour and are nicely roasted, add some soy sauce to make them taste more “ham-like”. Then, take them out of the pan.
- In the same pan, you can now roast the remaining 1/4 of the Brussels sprouts. When they are nicely roasted, add the tofu again and season with salt and pepper – the topping is done.
- To finish the soup, puree it and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Add the cream and arrange your soup with the topping.
- Enjoy 🙂
