Minestrone Tofu Soup

Standard

Thick. Hearty. SOUP!

A couple weeks back I was wandering around shopping at the mall….girl gotta have cute clothes…when I got hungry (dun, dun, dun).

Since I was still on my month long eating challenge; no-sugar, no-grains, no-processed, low-calorie, I thought it would be slightly challenging to find something to eat in a mall food court.

It wasn’t!

Ever heard of SoupMan? Well I hadn’t, but I had their vegetable minestrone soup and was completely SOLD!

It was so good and very filling. Having this super tasty and filling soup made me want to make my own.

Problem. I’ve never made soup. Ever. I’ve eaten crazy tons of soup but…haven’t made any.

Well….Check my results….

Minestrone Tofu Soup

May I pat myself on the back? Did and done.

I did a bunch of research trying to figure out the best way to make minestrone; lots of people had lots of opinions, methods, ingredients etc…

It got confusing, quick.

So I decided just to wing it.

I LOVED it!

My roommate tried and said it was delicious. So the soup Wins!
