    2 tbsp canola oil
    1/2 - 1 block of extra firm tofu, diced small
    2 Tbsp non-dairy butter
    1 cup onions, chopped
    2 carrots, diced
    2 stalks celery, chopped
    4 cloves garlic
    2 apples, diced
    2 Tbsp lemon juice
    1/2 tsp ground cumin
    2-3 Tbsp ground curry powder
    1/4 tsp. red or cayenne pepper
    pinch ground ginger
    pinch ground clove
    8 cups vegetable Broth
    salt and pepper to taste
    1 cup tofutti or other non-dairy sour cream


Gently press tofu slices between paper towels to get out as much water as possible. Dice into small pieces.

Sauté in a pan, diced tofu in canola oil for about 10 - 15 minutes or until crisp and golden brown. Salt and pepper to taste. (I have this going while I prep the other ingredients to save time.)

Sauté in a soup pot, onions, carrots, and celery in non-dairy butter for about 5 minutes . Add diced apples and garlic and continue to sauté until all are almost tender. Add all seasonings and lemon juice and then deglaze pan with vegetable stock.

Add the browned tofu and 1 cup rice to the soup pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat and simmer until rice is done, then stir in the tofutti or other non-dairy sour cream.

This recipe makes about 15 servings at about 1 cup each.

*With so few calories, you can even serve it with a nice chunk of french bread or a hard roll !!!
