Vegan Broccoli Coconut Soup with Crispy Tofu Topping

The cold season is soup season! What could be better than a plate of warming soup, while outside the wind blows the leaves through the area or the rain pattering against the Window? Or when the first snow has fallen and you can admire the white glory from inside the warm cosy room? And with this clever recipe you can bring a piece of the Caribbean into your kitchen despite the cold blues. The coconut milk not only ensures a super creamy consistency, but also provides that extra bit of flavor. Since such cream soups remind you of the last white tooth surgery or the Sunday dinner at grandma's house without ivories, the crispy tofu as an ingredient ensures that your teeth also have something to do. Chili also heats you up properly. So slip into your cuddly socks and enjoy a plate of well-being!
