  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
   1                       onion -- chopped
   3      stalks        celery (including tops) -- sliced
   1      28 oz         canned tomatoes crushed
   1      cup            water or veg stock
   2      tablespoons   apple juice, frozen concentrate
   2 1/2  teaspoons     sugar
     1/2  teaspoon       paprika
     1/2  teaspoon       basil -- dried
     1/4  teaspoon       black pepper
   2      tablespoons   flour
   2      cups             soy or rice milk
     1/2  teaspoon      salt (optional)
   1      teaspoon       crushed red pepper (optional)

Combine the onion, celery, crushed tomatoes, water, apple juice/sugar,
paprika, basil, and black pepper in a pot.  Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.

For a smooth soup, transfer to a blender in 2 or 3 small batches and puree
until very smooth, then pour back into the pot.  Skip this step if you prefer
chunky soup.

In a seperate pan, warm milk slowly.  Add flour and increase heat.  Wisk the
flour into the milk.  Stir constantly until steamy and slightly thickened.
 Then add it to the soup.

NOTES : I use a Braun hand mixer directly in the soup as it is cooking to
make smooth (about consistancy of marinara sauce).  Very Good.

I adapted this recipe from the PEACEFUL PALATE cook book.
