Saute the onion in soy sauce until it's tender. Add 1 1/2 cups of rice milk and 8 oz. tomato sauce to the onions, and bring to a boil. Mix 2 tablespoons of cornstarch with the remaining 1/2 cup of rice milk. Add the cornstarch/rice milk mixture to the soup, stirring constantly until thickened. Season to taste with your favorite seasonings. I used a little onion powder and some spicy Creole seasoning.
1 Tbsp. whole wheat or unbleached white pastry flour
4 cups veggie broth
5 tsp. black pepper
Salt or low sodium soy sauce to taste
6 slices french bread, toasted
In a large heavy stockpot, heat the wine until bubbling. Add the onions and reduce heat to medium. Cook the onions slowly, stirring frequently, for at least 20 minutes, until they become pastelike. Don't cook the onions too quickly, or they'll taste bitter.
Add the garlic and continue to cook 5 to 10 minutes until the garlic begins to look brown. Add the flour, stir well, and cook 2 minutes. Add the stock and bring the soup to a boil.
Reduce the heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Season the soup with pepper and salt or soy sauce. Ladle the soup into a bowl and float a slice of toasted bread on top of each.
1 1/2 pounds (about 9) carrots peeled and cut into 1" length
2 cups vegetable stock
2 cups fresh orange juice
1/4 cups fresh chopped mint
ground white pepper
fresh citrus slices and orange zest for garnish
Saute the leek and ginger until the leek is tender or about 5 minutes. Add the carrots and saute a bit more. Add the stock, bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and simmer until the carrots are tender, about 30 minutes. Puree using a blender in the pot. Add the orange juice and stir in the mint.
Yields: 2-3 servings
Preparation Time: depends upon how you serve it -- add 2 hours if you chill it
In a soup pot, heat to boiling the vegetable stock and cumin seed. Add the parsley and garlic.
Beat in a bowl, the eggs (or egg substitute), salt and pepper to taste. Add some of the vegetable broth to the egg mixture to heat. Stir the egg mixture into the hot soup and whisk. Simmer for 10 minutes. Garnish with chopped parsley.
