Makes 12 servings
8 oz. soft tofu, cubed
2 cans (15 oz) vegetable broth
1 small head cauliflower, chopped
2 small russet potatoes, peeled & cubed
½ cup chopped onion
1 TB butter
4 oz. cream cheese
salt & pepper to taste
1 TB dried parsley
1. In a large pot, add cauliflower, potatoes, & onion. Add broth & enough water to just cover the vegetables. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, & simmer over medium heat until the vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.
