    Great! I added corn and increased some of the other veggies! This soup is very tasty!

    I made no modifications. Threw in all the optional items - like chickpeas, cayenne pepper and lemon. The flavor was outstanding! Didn't expect that with such a short cooking time. Excellent recipe.that will be made many times over, I'm sure.

    I modified. Added 1/4 cup lentil beans 1/4 cup small red beans 1/4 cup great northern beans and 1/4 cup brown black and red rice. I cooked in a crock pot. I used 6 cups of vegetable broth and 3 1/2 cups of water. turnips instead of mushrooms did not use zucchini or edamame. Added kale as well. Absolutely fantastic!
