Combine beans, water, onions, celery, carrots, kombu, bay leaves, savory and tomato purée in a large soup kettle. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until beans and vegetables are tender, about 45 minutes.

Remove dumplings with a slotted spoon to a serving bowl. Stir stew to mix well. Ladle stew into individual serving bowls and top with dumplings.

Hints: For fresh tomato purée, place 3 to 4 medium-size tomatoes in a blender and blend until smooth.

Delicious with cooked greens and a tomato salad.

CORNMEAL DUMPLINGS: (Makes about 8 dumplings) In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine cornmeal, salt and baking powder. Blend tofu in a blender or food processor until smooth and creamy. Add tofu to cornmeal mixture and mix well.

Hints: Replace ½ cup all purpose flour for half of cornmeal.
