 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/2 c Anasazi beans
  • 3 c Water
  • 2 c Chopped onions
  • 1 c Chopped celery
  • 1 1/2 c Sliced carrots
  • 1 (7") strip kombu; rinsed
  • 3 Bay leaves
  • 2 ts Dried savory
  • 2 c Tomato puree
  • 1 tb Balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tb Low-sodium tamari


1/2 c Cornmeal
1/4 ts Sea salt
1/8 ts Baking powder
5 1/4 oz Extra-firm silken tofu

Combine beans, water, onions, celery, carrots, kombu, bay leaves, savory
and tomato puree in a large soup kettle. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and
simmer until beans and vegetables are tender, about 45 minutes.

Remove kombu, slice into bite-size pieces and return to kettle. Stir in
vinegar and tamari.

While the stew is cooking, prepare the dumpling dough (below). Bring stew
to a slow boil over medium heat and drop tablespoonfuls of batter onto
surface of stew. Cover and cook for 10 minutes.

Remove dumplings with a slotted spoon to a serving bowl. Stir stew to mix
well. Ladle stew into individual serving bowls and top with dumplings.
Serve immediately.

Hints: For fresh tomato puree, place 3 to 4 medium-size tomatoes in a
blender and blend until smooth.

Delicious with cooked greens and a tomato salad.

CORNMEAL DUMPLINGS: (Makes about 8 dumplings)

In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine cornmeal, salt and baking powder.

Blend tofu in a blender or food processor until smooth and creamy.

Add tofu to cornmeal mixture and mix well.

Hints: Replace 1/2 cup all purpose flour for half of cornmeal.
