      Title: Elegant chestnut soup
 Categories: Soups, Appetizers, Vegetarian
      Yield: 4 Servings
 
      3 c  Chestnuts, roasted & peeled
      1 tb Oil
    1/2 c  Onion, finely chopped
    1/4 c  Celery, chopped
  2 1/4 c  Water
    3/4 c  Apple juice
      1 ts Tamari
      1    Vegetable bouillon cube

MMMMM--------------------------OPTIONAL-------------------------------
      1 ds Nutmeg
 
  * To roast chestnuts: Choose fresh, firm, unwrinkled chestnuts with no
  signs of mold. On the flat side of each chestnut make 2 cuts with a
  small, sharp knife, from one end to the other in the shape of an X.
  Place the chestnuts, cut side up, on a low baking sheet with a thin
  layer of water on the bottom. Bake the chestnuts for 20-25 minutes at
  350F until browned and the cuts peel back naturally from the heat.
  Test one chestnut to be sure its "meat" is tender. When tender,
  remove from oven, cool only slightly, peel and enjoy or use in
  recipes. Some people like to boil the cut chestnuts for easier
  peeling. This is okay, though some nutrients and flavour will be lost.
  
   Prepare chestnuts. Peel off the outer shell and the fuzzy skin before
  using the inner chestnut meat.
  
    Heat the oil until hot and saute the onion until semi-tender. Add
  the celery and saute until both are very tender. Blend the water and
  apple juice with the chestnuts and all the remaining ingredients*.
  Simmer everything on low to medium heat (do NOT boil!) for about
  15-20 minutes or until hot throughout and the flavours mingle. Enjoy
  this rich and tantalizing soup with extra chopped or ground nuts as a
  garnish.
  
  Keeps 4-6 days refrigerated.
  
  *Two vegetable bouillon cubes may be used instead of the tamari or
  miso. Also, 1/2 cup applesauce and 2 1/2 cups water can be used
  instead of the juice and 2 1/4 cups water. *Anne's note: I would
  assume by reading this, she means blend these ingredients in a
  blender and return to the pot.
