Introduction: Seductive Celery Garlic Soup With Tofu Croutons!

Picture of Seductive Celery Garlic Soup With Tofu Croutons!

Recipe: For 7.5 cups = 1875 ml of soup

Ingredients:

1 white onion, peeled & finely cut up

4 fat cloves of garlic, peeled & finely cut up

5 cups fresh cleaned, cut up green celery ( leaves & green stem ) ( the celery pieces really pushed into the cups ) ( 485 gr )

1500 ml of a hot vegan stock

1 heaped 1/3 cup of peeled sweet potato, cut up into smaller chunks ( 60 gr )

30 grins of black pepper, finely milled

1/2 teaspoon of crushed Maldon sea salt a fruity extra virgin olive oil

To top the soup with: vegan marinated spiced up tofu pieces ( I used Alpro )

Method:

1. Take a medium cooking pot & heat up on medium-high. When hot, add some drizzles of that fruity evoo in it. Swirl around the base of the pot & heat up. When hot, add cut up garlic & white onion. Fry for a few minutes until nearly tender. Add about 10 grins of black pepper & stir often. Now, add all the chopped celery, chopped leaves included. Fry for about 5 to 8 minutes, stirring often. Pour some more evoo, if you need to. Add chopped sweet potato. Stir & fry for a few minutes extra. Finally, pour hot vegan stock all over the veggies. Boil until the veggies are cooked through. It took me about 10 minutes on medium-high heat. Taste! I added 20 grins of black pepper & 1/2 teaspoon of crushed sea salt. MMM! I Vitamixed my whole soup. Keep warm while you fry your spiced up vegan tofu chunks!

2. Take a medium non-stick pan & heat up on high. Add some drizzles of that fruity evoo in it & heat up. When hot, add spiced up tofu pieces & fry on all sides until hot & browned on all sides. Ladle your soup into lovely white soup bowls & top each bowl with about 14 tofu pieces! Enjoy, best with a loved one! xxx

You do realize it's absurd to use extra virgin olive oil for cooking? By definition of the term "extra virgin" it's oil which has been mechanically pressed from olives without any heat. Cooking with EVOO is wasting money and effectively the same as converting EVOO into pure olive oil.

I do what I like.
