These cold winter days make me crave soup.  This is a favorite of mine, even 
tho it is not as hearty as most.

Tofu Soup

6 dried black mushrooms
12 ounces of reduced fat tofu
4 ounces of oriental pea pods
4 cups of Veggie broth
Salt and soy to taste
     Soak the dried mushrooms in very warm water until they are soft.  This 
takes about 1/2 hour.  Drain the liquid through a coffee filter or a very 
fine sieve and save.  Discard the stems.  Cut mushrooms into pieces.  Cut 
tofu into bite size cubes.  If you are using fresh pea pods, remove strings.
     Bring veggie broth to a boil and add mushroom liquid.  Add mushrooms, 
tofu and salt or a little soy sauce if you wish.  Return to boil and reduce 
heat.  Cover and cook for 5 minutes.  Add pea pods and return to a boil.  
Taste for seasonings.  Serve.  Makes about 6 cups.
