How Do I Make this High Protein Queso Soup Recipe?

  2. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, blend the tofu, apple cider vinegar, and lemon juice (to make a vegan sour cream). When soup has finished cooking, stir the tofu sour cream into the soup and dish up!  Add toppings of choice.
