Rice Soup

Ingredients

 

¾ cup basmati rice

¾ cup long grain white rice

1 quart Vegetarian Soup Base (see Vegetarian Soup Base)

½ gallon water (use more or less water to adjust the density of the soup)

1 pound carrots (cut into ¼ inch cubes)

1 pound daikon (cut into ¼ inch cubes)

2 ounces dried Shiitake mushrooms (soak in warm water about 1 hour, wash and squeeze dry by hands, and then chop into small pieces)

1 ½ cups fried tofu crumbles (see fried tofu crumbles)

2 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon black peper

1 teaspoon dry mushroom seasoning
