You can make this simple tofu

This soup is a family favorite and easy to prepare. As long as you have the ingredients on hand, you can throw this delcious soup together on a busy weeknight.


  • 8 ounces firm tofu
  • 1 medium onion, halved and sliced

  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 ounce ginger, chopped
  • 1 carton ginger broth (or vegetable broth with extra ginger)
  • 15 ounce package assorted, frozen vegetables

  • 3 tbs. teriyaki sauce

  • bunch of fresh cilantro
  • spicy sauce, to taste


  1. Slice the tofu into four sections, lengthwise. Fold the tofu in a towel, so the moisture will be absorbed. Let this sit for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Sauté the onion, garlic, and ginger in a bit of the ginger broth (instead of oil).
  3. Once the onion start to become translucent, stir in the rest of the broth.

  4. When the broth comes to a boil, add the package of frozen vegetables.
  5. Reduce the heat, and let the soup simmer.
  6. Meanwhile, heat a pan over medium-low heat. Add the tofu slabs. If you don't have a non-stick pan, you will need to use a little oil.
  7. When the tofu turns a golden brown, flip the pieces over. Continue to cook until the other side is also golden brown.
  8. Remove the tofu from the pan, and let cool for a few minutes.
  9. Stir the teriyaki sauce into the simmering soup.
  10. Cut each slab of tofu into four pieces (you will end up with 16 pieces). Add to soup.

  11. Stir in the desired about of hot sauce and a handful of cilantro.
  12. Serve and enjoy.

      I appreciate these blogs about funrael notes at this website. I recently bought sympathy notes at this site and found the price to be much more reasonable than a similar item at a loca retail store.

      This soup looks heartwarming and absolutely delicious! I am not sure if I could ever find the soy ginger broth but just by looking at your final result I feel happy.

      It sounds delicious! However I am wondering if it is freezer friendly or would it have to be served immediately?

      this looks filling. firm tofu are heavy in the stomach. when there's no enough time to fry the tofu, we just boil the cubes with the soup. they're soft and delicious, too. :)
