Last December while we were in Orlando, FL. we ate at one of my all time favorite restaurants – Sweet Tomatoes. Anytime we travel, we look for this restaurant! Anyway, if you have been in the last year, you may have tried this amazing soup. It is sooooo yummy!
Souplantation’s Asian Ginger Broth
4 tablespoons finely minced ginger
3 tablespoons finely minced garlic
2 tablespoons canola oil
6 tablespoons cornstarch
2 cups cold water
14 cups water
6 tablespoons vegetarian base (see note)
Yields approximately 1 gallon
Combine ginger, garlic and oil in a large pot and saute for 5 minutes. Add cornstarch and 2 cups cold water to pot and whisk to dissolve. Add rest of water and vegetarian base to pot and bring to a boil. Simmer for 15 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Garnish with any combination of the following items: sliced green onions, shredded carrots, chopped spinach, sliced
mushrooms, wonton strips, cubed tofu.
Note: Vegetarian base – Sweet Tomatoes (Souplantation) uses Custom brand vegetarian base powder. You can substitute with a similar base such as McKay’s Chicken Seasoning, or use chicken broth in place of the water if you are not vegetarian.
