Vegan curry soup with tofu

There are just so many ways to make soup. I could make a new one every day, and still not exhaust all the possibilities. So I hope you’re ready to eat all the soup, because I have plenty more recipes planned out for the rest of autumn and winter. Speaking of autumn, I am genuinely shook that it’s November – and the fact that we are a week or so into it already. Yikes, that’s all I have to say.

 

Anyway, let’s discuss food instead. That’s a much more appetising topic, quite literally. This vegan curry soup with tofu is one that I’ve wanted to share with you for weeks. And if I were you, I would put it in your weekly dinner rotation ASAP!

Vegan soup with noodles and tofu

Curry flavours are some of my favourite. What makes them great is that you can incorporate them into so many dishes, not just curry. Take, for example, this soup. Together with other spices such as cumin and turmeric, it brings in a wonderful unique flavour that will have you going back for seconds.

This soup is the perfect balance between creamy and fresh. As in, the coconut milk makes it indulgent but not sickly. The various spices give it a delicate umami flavour that clings onto the noodles and the vegetables, which in themselves help add texture and a natural freshness.

Tofu is one of the star ingredients for sure. It adds variety to each bite, as well as a serving of vegan protein. Tofu, when done right, can definitely take a meal like this curry soup to the next level.

What’s also fantastic about this easy soup is how versatile it is. You can add any toppings you like. For example, I kept it simple in the photos and added avocado, cherry tomatoes and a little bit of sweetcorn. But, you can go as crazy as you like and experiment with whatever veggies you have in the fridge.

What noodles should I use?

You can use any noodle variety of your choice! I like to use either gluten-free soba noodles, or rice noodles. Keep in mind, however, that cooking times may vary depending on thee variety that you use, just as the amount of liquid necessary to prevent the soup for drying out.
