A very tasty soup. I used chicken broth instead of water/granules and fresh tarragon, since I still had some in the garden. I also added a few dried mushrooms, plus their soaking water (as part of the liquid indicated). Mine turned out more like a soup (not like the photo), and next time I would add more mushrooms, potatoes and scallops, to make it more chowdery. I would also add more dried mushrooms, as I love the earthy quality that dried mushroom add.
