Cream of Tomato Soup
12 or so tomatoes (fresh from your garden if you have one)
1 Tbsp pepper
1 Tbsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 Tbsp celery salt
1 Tbsp basil
2 Tbsp onion salt
2 cup Rice Dream (or your favorite soy drink)
6 Tbsp corn starch (in shaker with 1 cup water)
If you want to remove skins, place tomatoes in boiling water for 3 minutes, then in ice cold water. Place in a large pot and mash with a potato masher.
If you want to use the skins (I do), remove tomato stems, blend a few at a time in a blender and place in a large cooking pot.
Bring tomatoes to a slow boil temperature with the other ingredients, and then stir while slowly pouring in the corn starch/water mixture. Cook to your desired thickness (you may add additional cornstarch mixture).
Enjoy with your favorite crusty vegan bread.
