For the Soup
First we have to make vegetable stock.
Take 2 cups of mixed vegetables of your choice (I use potato, carrot, celery, onion that’s all available for me today) Cut all the vegetables in to big chunks. Take a stockpot with 5 cups of water, add all the vegetables, 3 cloves of garlic, 1 tsp of chopped ginger, bay leaf, 4 cloves and few peppercorns. Put it on a high flame till it started to boil and then simmer it for an hour. Strain the stock in a colander, keep it aside and you are good to go.
For more detailed recipe for stock refer to- http://allrecipes.com/HowTo/Making-Vegetable-Stock/Detail.aspx Its very helpful.
When ready to serve, boil the stock , add green onion, sprouted soya beans, salt, ½ tsp of sugar, pepper and dumplings boil for 1 more minute.
Serve hot with a bottle of tobacco sauce for the added spicy kick if needed on choice.
