Tomato Rice Soup
"This is an elegant version of the old-fashioned tomato and rice soup, studded with fresh seafood. If you want a simpler dish, omit the seafood. If you are lucky enough to have a garden full of fresh tomatoes, you can substitute them for the canned variety. Use about 1 and 1/2 pounds ripe tomatoes, cored and chopped."

· 2 tablespoons olive oil
· 1/2 cup chopped onion
· 2 stalks celery, chopped
· 1 large carrot, finely chopped
· 1/2 cup uncooked long-grain rice
· 1 (29 ounce) can diced tomatoes
· 2 cups chicken broth
· salt and pepper to taste
· 3/4 pound scallops
· 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
1. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion, celery, and carrot; cook and stir vegetables until they begin to soften, approximately 2 to 3 minutes. Add rice and cook, stirring until rice is evenly coated in oil, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in undrained tomatoes, chicken broth, and salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes.


2. Rinse the scallops, and if large cut scallops in half. Stir the scallops into soup, and cover. Continue to simmer until the rice is tender and the scallops are opaque, approximately 5 to 10 minutes.
3. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Stir in the basil, and serve.

To use in place of canned cream soups in casseroles or as a base for your own soups. Much lower in fat and salt than the canned versions. The trick is to have it made up ready to use! Combine all ingredients, mixing well. Store in an airtight container until ready to use.
To substitute for one can of condensed soup:
Combine 1/3 cup of dry mix with 1 1/4 cups of cold water in a saucepan. Cook and stir until thickened. Add to casseroles as you would the canned product.

1) 450G (1 lb) Tallow - beef fat - ask you butcher for the trimmings - he will probably sell these to you for very little cost.
2) 28g (1 oz) lye (sodium hydroxide) - from chemist.
3) 1/2 cup rainwater.
5) Petroleum Jelly.
6) Muslin cloth.
7) Large stainless steel pan.
8) Margerine tubs, washed and dried.

WARNING - Lye (sodium hydroxide) burns - do not get onto your skin. Treat with caution as you would bleach - wear rubber gloves.

1. Take the beef fat, trim off all meat - every last little bit - and cut the fat into small pieces. Put into the pan on a hob and melt down. Pour the fat through the muslin into a bowl and let cool.
2. Heat the rainwater in a stainless steel pan and carefully stir in the Lye - stir with a wooden spoon - do not boil but stir until very hot. Leave to cool.

3. While the Lye water is cooing - wipe the insides of the margerine tubs with the pretroleum jelly.

4. Once the lye water has cooled add to the fat and keep stirring until it becomes like toffee fudge, and then pour into the margerine cartons. The lye will remain active for 24 hours while the soap is soft - put up somewhere high away from kids and pets and leave to set for a few days.
