When I woke up this morning I had no idea I’d be making Curried Vegetable Bisque. But while surfing the web I found this video about making soups with our soy milk maker. I didn’t have cilantro or tamari soy sauce, so I made a quick trip to Wegman’s to pick up supplies. By the time I got back and prepared everything, my breakfast had turned into brunch.
Our soy milk machine has a bunch of settings that I’ve never used before. I suppose if you don’t have one, you could put all of these ingredients into a food processor and puree them, then heat for 30 minutes on the stove. But our machine did all the work for us. I dropped everything into the mix and pushed the porridge button. Here’s the recipe:
Curried Vegetable Bisque
2 cups sliced broccoli florets
1 1/2 cups sliced carrots
1 medium Yukon Gold potato, sliced with skin
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1/3 cup red bell pepper
8 grape tomatoes
1/3 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper (optional)
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon cumin
Add about 4 1/2 cups of water to just between the 2 lines on canister
After cycle is complete – Add:
1 cup nutritional yeast
2 Tablespoons Tamari
Place ingredients in the canister in the order listed, attach the machine head, plug in and press the PORRIDGE button. The machine will beep a few times as it goes through the cycle. In 30 minutes the machine will beep several times and the keep warm light will activate. Remove the machine head, and add the nutritional yeast and the Tamari with a whisk. Serve hot.

One addition that really made this great is tortilla crumbs. I loved this soup. Even my wife had a serving. I’ll be making more soups with my soy milk machine, that’s for sure!
