Serves 4

1 cup vegetable broth

1/2 cup sundried tomatoes, packed (use either dried or in oil)

1/4-1/2 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 handful fresh basil leaves, plus more for garnish

3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 cup silken tofu

1-2 cloves fresh garlic

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

Heat the sundried tomatoes in the broth for about a minute, either on a stovetop or microwave, until the tomatoes are tender.

Combine all the ingredients in a food processor or blender, leaving some chunks of tomatoes if desired.

Serve over brown rice pasta cooked al dente, garnishing with basil leaves, and cayenne pepper if desired.
