Sour and Hot Soup
(from Recipes For A Small Planet by Ellen Ewald
Note by author: If you prefer a soupier soup, serve the grain on the side
with fresh steamed vegetables.
1 1/4 cup raw brown rice, cooked
1 cup sliced mushrooms
about 3 ounces tofu, grated
1/2 cup sliced water chestnuts
4 cups vegie stock
1 T tamari (soy sauce)
2 Tablespoons white vinegar
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 Tablespoons cornstarch mixed with 3 Tablespoons cold stock
1 egg equivalent
1 green onion chopped or several chives
1, To grate the tofu, use the coarse side of a cheese grater; grate the tofu
as you would grate cheese.
2, Bring the stock, soy sauce, and vinegar to a boil; stir in the tofu,
mushrooms, water chestnuts, salt and pepper.
3. Bring to a second boil; then pour in the cornstarch mixture. Stir until
the soup thickens slightly.
4. Simmer the soup as you slowly pour in the egg substitute, stirring
contantly for egg drops.
5. To serve: dish up some of the grain into the soup bowls, pour a serving
of soup over the grain, sprinkle with scallons; and you're ready to serve.
