"This is a delicious soup recipe that is great for using up all that extra zucchini you have in the garden. Creamy texture comes from cottage cheese and tofu." — AnnaBanana

1/2 (14 ounce) package
firm tofu, cubed
red pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste
Pretty good and hearty soup. I added garlic and more oregano, as well as a little mozarella cheese. I served it with sour cream on top, which was delicious. A good vegetarian main or regular side dish with good taste and unique texture. May be good cold as well, I plan to try it with broccoli instead of zucchini and see how that goes.
I LOVE spice, but 2 tsp of red pepper rendered the soup practically inedible. Even with a reduced amount of red pepper, there still would have been "something" missing in the flavor. I give this 2-stars as written; it has possibilities, but definitely needs to be doctored for more flavor.
Very good, but WAY WAY WAY too much crushed red pepper. It totally overwhelmed the flavor.
OUTSTANDING! very tasty. now it's time to think of what to add, maybe carrots?
Fabulous recipe! I love spicy food so the red pepper flakes were just my style. Anybody sensitive to spicy foods should leave the pepper flakes out.
It's a great soup! I added a dollop of sour cream with the cottage cheese. I plan to thicken it up to drizzle over steamed or cold veggies!
I forgot...I'm on a diet, so I used Pam instead of butter. I also used just 1/4 cup of low fat cottage cheese and a small dollop of low fat sour cream.
This is really good. I just added more spice and grated zucchini to put in the soup and make it thicker. But nice and low cal.
I loved this soup. It can be a meal all on its own. I did add a chicken thigh and carrot to it with the broth and blended it altogether at the end.
I just tried it yesterday, really good. I used chicken stock instead of vegetable and in the beginning fried some bacon strips and then fried the onion and the rest in the oil that came out of the bacon. Will definately do it again!
