Rice is replaced by the addition of tofu in this delicious vegetarian soup. Serve with toasted garlic bread croutons and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil.


  • 4 cups reduced-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/3 cup white rice
  • 1 12-ounce package silken tofu (about 1-1/2 cups)
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


  1. Place the broth and the rice in a large saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat.
  2. Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook the mixture for 15 minutes or until rice is tender.
  3. Place 2 cups of the hot rice in a food processor along with the tofu, oil and turmeric, and process for about 1 minute until mixture is smooth and creamy.
  4. Transfer the tofu mixture back to the saucepan and whisk together with the lemon juice, dill and pepper. Heat through and serve immediately.
