Vegan Plomeek Soup

I was inspired by Thedihedral’s blog when one of the climbers said their favorite food is Plomeek Soup. Watching Star Trek and Commander Spock throwing the Plomeek Soup I thought my soup will be no good. I looked up recipes and they really run the gamut. The soup in the dish that Miss Chapel holds looks like beef broth. To my delight, there are lots of vegan recipes. The main ingredients seem to be celery, butter, and cream. I found a recipe on with tofu. I tried it and made it my own and it’s delicious. This is probably the best soup I have ever made. It’s extremely flavorful. And I don’t puree it. It basically tastes and looks like a vegan chicken soup, but more savory. I hope it’s not too spicy for a Vulcan.

1 cup sweet onion, finely chopped
3 ribs celery, chopped
5 carrots, peeled and diced
14 oz. firm tofu, cubed
6 cups water, filtered
3 Not-Chick’n Edward & Sons bouillon cubes
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. rainbow peppercorn, ground
1 tsp. ancho chili powder
1/2 tsp. smoked paprika
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/2 tsp. celery seeds
1/2 tsp. dried parsley
.5 oz. dried Porcini mushrooms
4 Tbsp. Miyoko’s vegan butter
2 Tbsp. tamari

Servings: 8

I use a 2 cup Pyrex measuring cup and fill it with water and put in the 3 bouillon cubes so I can have it ready to sauté the veggies. Gather the dry seasonings and combine in a dish. You can always use half and taste the soup then add the rest of the spices if you like. The spices come out to 3 tablespoons. Chop veggies and tofu.

Add a tablespoon of broth to your soup pot and sauté the onions for five minutes. Add the celery and cook for three minutes and then add the carrots and cook for three minutes. Add the spices and sauté veggies for a minute to get it all covered with the flavors. Add tofu and don’t sauté. Add the two cups of broth then four more cups of water. Break up the dried mushrooms into small pieces and drop in soup.

Instead of using a vegan beef broth, Renaissance Man suggested dried mushrooms. He learned to make a broth out of dried mushrooms from Martha Stewart’s website. What a difference if you can find quality dried mushrooms.

Add Miyoko’s vegan butter and then the tamari. Let the soup simmer for 40 minutes then serve hot.

Once I had bean sprouts leftover from making Pad Thai and topped the soup with the leftover sprouts. It was good.

Food for Thought:
Warning: This is not for the faint of heart. Since I am on the topic of Star Trek I have heard a couple of times that the writer of the show, Gene Roddenberry, was informed not completely creative in his writing. Once I heard this at a mufon meeting by a chapter president. Many not all writers do research, but a few almost tell the future. Writers sometimes are in a sort of secret group. In Roddenberry’s case, he knew creator and executive producer, Leslie Stevens, of the show The Outer Limits. Stevens was the son of U.S. Navy Vice Admiral Leslie Stevens who was a contemporary of Rear Admiral Rico Botta. Rear Admiral Botta led a covert Navy program that managed 29 spies embedded in Nazi Germany’s aerospace program that developed spaceships. From here, the Navy learned to build its own spaceships to counter the Nazis. It is possible that Admirals Stevens and Botta helped with the beginning stages of the U.S. Navy space fleet. Then you have to ask yourself where did they get the technology? Why do we need the technology? How much does the technology cost? Who’s making it? Who’s paying for it? That’s where the let’s say nonhumans come in. I don’t like the word alien or UFO because plenty of people know what’s going on. You may say well I haven’t seen anything, it can’t be real. Yes with ufology, there are liars. Ufology is like a religion—you’ll get mostly truth and then some lies—or something like that. It takes research and discernment to, as the chapter president of mufon likes to say, “Separate the wheat from the chaff.”

When I heard Linda Moulton Howe at a mufon meeting she said the Truman administration had a policy of denial. Dr. Bob Wood, who worked for Douglas Aircraft, told us at a mufon meeting that they keep it secret by putting people in jail, threatening them, killing them, and/or taking away their pension. And this includes the families of those working in the secret space program. One of my favorites, Dr. Wood said they put UFOs in the “New Age” section of the library. Apparently, there were two Dr. Bob Woods’ in the ufology field. I am referring to Dr. Bob M. Wood with a Ph.D. in Physics from Cornell University who can be seen on Ancient Aliens. He had said on the show that most of the UFOs we see are ours. So I asked him at a mufon meeting to clarify how many are ours and who are “ours”? He thought about it and said 75% of the UFOs we see are ours and they are made in Montana, Utah, and the Lakes all underground.

This is a very small piece of the information and how much of it is truth I don’t know. But from what I understand, the Galactic Federation of Worlds (I think other people from other planets who have their own fleet.) and people in our Secret Space program want us to know what’s going on so that we can live free and have free energy. From what I understand, they are watching us to take the temperature to see if we can handle the truth. I wish they would rip off the Band-Aid and tell the truth. I don’t care who it scares. The faster we get the truth the faster we can have spaceships. I don’t want to wait ten years. Can you imagine taking an Uber spaceship to Europe or Japan or Antarctica? Or maybe someday they will let us buy spaceships. You can take your pets with you because you can zip everywhere in minutes. No need to check the dogs and cats into a pet hotel while you and the family take a vacation. I want my spaceship. Forget MTV. I want my . . . I want my . . .  spa-ace-ship.

I hope you had fun reading this post and it excites your imagination. Please don’t throw Plomeek soup at me.

Happy Vegan!
