This is an easy soup based on canned soybeans and canned or bottled artichoke hearts. Excellent varieties of organic canned soybeans are now available at health food stores. These soybeans are generally low in sodium and the slightly gelatinous broth in the can can be added right in with your soups and stews. You can, of course, substitute chicken stock for the vegetable stock in this soup if you prefer the flavor of chicken stock-based soups.

1 14 oz can or bottle of artichoke hearts
1 15 oz can of organic, cooked soybeans
1 garlic clove
1 tsp grated ginger root
1 tsp olive oil
2 cups vegetablestock

Drain the artichoke hearts. Combine in a blender or food processor with the canned soybeans and process until smooth. Saute the garlic and ginger in the olive oil then stir in the artichoke heart/soybean puree and add the vegetable stock. Stir well and heat through.
