      This was quite good, but there was to much lemon juice for my liking. I should have re-read the other reviews before I made it! The only thing I changed was to use rice pasta. I'll make this again, but add lemon juice to taste.

      I have to agree that this is a very attractive soup with great eye appeal, and best of all, it tastes good! I did have to take a few small liberties ... I didn't have fresh tomatoes so used a can of plum tomatoes and my zucchini in storage was really huge so did a bit of guess work. I did go a touch light on the lemon juice. A definite five, just as I expected from a Moosewood recipe! Thank you for sharing.

      This was so good, and extremely quick and fast to pull together! I made a double batch the first night, and liked it so much that I made another double batch the next night to freeze! I omitted celery and tomato juice because I didn't have them on hand, and used canned tomatoes in place of fresh. I used frozen mixed veggies in place of zucchini. I doubled the potatoes and carrots. I used rice in place of vermicelli, and I added the rice when I added the vegetable stock. I used about half the lemon juice.
