Okay, I'm not desperate, but have attempted to re-create a family (SAD) almond celery soup recipe. Tried almond butter, celery and white miso with a light touch of onion. Not quite there. Any and all ideas welcome. The original had a chicken base which white miso was really a workable substitute for. Sauteed onion, almond slices, and thin sliced celery were the only other ingredients.
Thanks in advance for your assistance in creating a replacement for one of my favoritie soups.

If white miso works out well for your base, then how about slivered almonds (or you could get whole almonds and just lightly pulse chop in the food processor to break them up a bit; for the sauteed onions, lightly coat some onions in a litte olive (or other light, cold pressed oil), Nama Shoyu (IF you use that - if not, celtic salt will do) and put in the dehydrator (assuming you have one...if not, allow it to sit and marinate for an hour or longer) until they get soft; and the celery, well that's a given :)
Also, maybe take a small amount of the soup once you're done making it and put that small bit in a bowl, sprinkle a tiny bit of poultry seasoning and see if that adds to or destroys the flavor. If it is good, add some to the rest of the soup, if not, all is not lost since you only tested it on a small portion of the soup.

Thank you for the suggestions and the quick reply. I had just made and ate my last attempt. I will definately use your suggestions for my favorite soup. I guess I'm living proof of Alissa's advice about naturally being attracted to the other parts of the raw food triangle since the last coupe of days I've been craving soups instead of the heavier nut laden dishes, and this past week I was only satisfied with big veggie-laden salads and tons (well seems like it) of greens.
I'll post the results of the soup recipe using your suggestions. Maybe starting a "soup only" thread would be a good idea, too.
