Tomato tofu soup

5-ish Minute Creamy Tomato Tofu Soup

Nothing hits the spot quite like soup on cold winter days. I love tomato soup, either by itself or to accompany one of its ideal companions – grilled cheese. If I want a filling tomato soup on the table in about 5 minutes, this tofu soup is my go-to!

You’ll notice I list a lot of the ingredients as optional – try adding your favorite ingredients and play around with ratios, tasting as you go. That’s part of the fun!

This tofu soup is ready in a few minutes, is filling and healthy, and is creamy yet dairy-free – the creaminess comes from the tofu!


  • 1 block of tofu (16-oz.), drained

  • 1 can of tomatoes (15-oz.)
    Use whatever you have on hand – diced, pureed, whole, etc. You could also spice this up by using fire roasted tomatoes.

  • 1 Tbs soy sauce, or to taste

  • A few Tbs of sun-dried tomatoes in oil, to taste

  • A splash of balsamic vinegar, to taste (optional)

  • 1 tsp – 1 Tbs hot sauce, to taste (optional)

  • Sprinkle of nutritional yeast, to taste (optional)

  • Fresh cracked black pepper, to serve (optional)


  • In a high-powered blender or food processor, add all ingredients and puree. Taste for seasoning and adjust if needed. Now is your chance to play around with ratios and have some fun!
  • Heat pureed soup on the stovetop or in the microwave. It can sometimes splatter, so you may need to cover the pot with a lid (or a microwave-safe plate or plastic wrap, if using the microwave). Stir the soup occasionally while heating to prevent any sticking/burning to the bottom of the pot.
  • And…that’s it! Go ahead and serve.
  • Serve and top with fresh cracked black pepper, if using. Creativity in the kitchen is what makes cooking fun – consider spicing this up by topping with chives, green onions, nutritional yeast, cheese, or whatever makes your taste buds happy!


  • You can change the ratio of tomatoes to tofu by adding more canned tomatoes for a less thick, more tomato-y soup.
  • Try this soup with a nice batch of savory chickpea waffles!
