I was a bit confused by the mention of onion in the directions, when it wasn't listed in the ingredients, but I pressed on.  I had half an onion I needed to use up anyway, so I chopped it up and threw it in with the potatoes and carrots.  I put in a dash of garlic powder and some soy sauce to add a bit of zest.  It was warm and rich and tasty - just right for a cold winter day!  Thanks for sharing.


I changed this recipie a little to what I had around. I used:
    1 cup water
    1 small red potato, cubed
    1 small carrot, in coins
    2/3 cups corn, frozen
    1/4 cup soy milk
    Lots of Mrs. Dash

Thanks for the start of a great idea! It was great and warm seeing as how it was only 30 degrees this morning :)
