In a deep pot, saute the onions in olive oil until edges are brown, add garlic and ginger, stir a few minutes, then add rosemary, bay leaf, rest of vegetables, and saute 1 minute. Add 6 cups of water, and simmer low for about 30 min. Strain off veggies, and the remaining liquid stock is your broth.
Mold strained veggies into patties and bake 15 minutes, 350 degrees, or until cooked through. Serve with your favorite spicy sauce! Or refrigerate them until tomorrow since, right now, your soup's on!!
Prepare Soup Ingredients
Steam broccoli and zucchini coins until hot (we like them nearly raw), and prepare soba noodles according to package directions.
Pour heated broth into a shallow soup bowl, add noodles, on top of those add raw mushrooms and celery, steamed broccoli and zucchini, sprinkle cashews, scallions, sesame seeds and cilantro, and stir in lime juice. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve with chop sticks!
