these to the boiling water and cook for 10 minutes. Drain. Put into
food processor with onion and garlic and process to coarse puree.
In large skillet, heat vegetable oil over medium heat, add puree
and simmer for 2 minutes.
Add salt and broth and simmer for 15 minutes,
stirring occasionally. Keep warm.

Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes
