This soup is wonderful! I guess it's the porcini mushrooms(I've never used them before). I was slightly skeptical at first, but after the second bite, I was hooked! Thanks for a delicious soup! Oh, I did add about 1/2 cup summer squash cause I got given a bunch and did add a little veg. broth powder!
