This is absolutely delicious!  I had made it before and lost the recipe so I was delighted to find it today.   The tofu that I use is 12 oz and plenty for a batch this size.  Just be sure to wrap in paper towels to absorb the moisture before cubing into small pieces.  Once all the ingredients are in the broth is not substantial so if you like a more brothy consistency make it 4.5 cups of soy milk and be sure to not substitute the bouillon cubes.  Garnish with diced avocado, scallions, or tomatoes.  You will not be disappointed if you truly enjoy all the ingredients that go into making this yummy, hearty dish.  P.S.  Photo is not the best but you get the picture (non pun intended!).
