The secret to perfect #vegan biscotti. For that crisp snap we love in those #Italian beauties, whip soaked chia with vegan butter and sweetener until it’s almost like mousse, about 3 minutes.

It completely satisfies my craving for Chinese take-out without all the fat, sugar and salt I don’t want. It’s so delicious. What are some of your favorite soups?

Ingredient List: 
1 teaspoon dark sesame oil
1 onion, diced
4-5 cups Vegetable Stock or spring or filtered water
3 ribs celery, thinly sliced on a diagonal
1 carrot, diced
2 cups finely shredded Chinese cabbage
2 stalks broccoli, small florets and stems peeled and diced
1 tablespoon brown rice syrup
2 tablespoons mustard powder
sea salt
1 tablespoon brown rice vinegar
1-2 fresh green onions, thinly sliced for garnish
Step By Step Instructions: 
Heat oil in a soup pot and sauté onions until translucent. Add stock and bring to a boil. Add celery, carrots, cabbage and broccoli stems. Cover and cook over low heat for 10 minutes. Stir in rice syrup, mustard powder and a light seasoning of salt. Add broccoli florets and simmer for 5 minutes more. Remove from heat and stir in rice vinegar. Serve garnished with fresh green onions.

If serving this soup with wonton or dumplings, simply simmer them for the last 5 minutes of cooking, so they are soft, but not doughy.
