1. Vegan Cream of Chicken Soup

Nothing beats a bowl of warm creamy soup on a chilly rainy day. If you used to love chicken soup, you might just love this cruelty-free version even more. Instead of chicken, the recipe calls for baked tofu. Baking helps to give the tofu the right texture (so it’s not soft and slimy) and also helps to seal in the flavor. Cashews make up the creamy base and veggies give it a hearty kick of nutrition.
