Ingredients
  1. 3 c Chestnuts, roasted & peeled
  2. 1 tb Oil
  3. 1/2 c Onion, finely chopped
  4. 1/4 c Celery, chopped
  5. 2 1/4 c Water
  6. 3/4 c Apple juice
  7. 1 ts Tamari
  8. 1 Vegetable bouillon cube
Optional
  1. 1 ds Nutmeg
Instructions
  1. * To roast chestnuts: Choose fresh, firm, unwrinkled
  2. chestnuts with no signs of mold. On the flat side of each
  3. chestnut make 2 cuts with a small, sharp knife, from one
  4. end to the other in the shape of an X. Place the
  5. chestnuts, cut side up, on a low baking sheet with a thin
  6. layer of water on the bottom. Bake the chestnuts for 20-25
  7. minutes at 350F until browned and the cuts peel back
  8. naturally from the heat. Test one chestnut to be sure its -
  9. inchmeat-inch is tender. When tender, remove from oven,
  10. cool only slightly, peel and enjoy or use in recipes. Some
  11. people like to boil the cut chestnuts for easier peeling.
  12. This is okay, though some nutrients and flavour will be
  13. lost.
  14. Prepare chestnuts. Peel off the outer shell and the fuzzy
  15. skin before using the inner chestnut meat.
  16. Heat the oil until hot and saute the onion until semi-
  17. tender. Add the celery and saute until both are very
  18. tender. Blend the water and apple juice with the chestnuts
  19. and all the remaining ingredients*. Simmer everything on
  20. low to medium heat (do NOT boil!) for about 15-20 minutes
  21. or until hot throughout and the flavours mingle. Enjoy
  22. this rich and tantalizing soup with extra chopped or
  23. ground nuts as a garnish.
  24. Keeps 4-6 days refrigerated.
  25. *Two vegetable bouillon cubes may be used instead of the
  26. tamari or miso. Also, 1/2 cup applesauce and 2 1/2 cups
  27. water can be used instead of the juice and 2 1/4 cups
  28. water.
