    Bec's Note:

    The fresh basil flavors this hearty soup, but if you can't find fresh, use 1/2 teaspoon dried basil and stir it in when you add the broth. From a vegetarian cookbook of mine.

      I didn't have any mushrooms on hand, so I totally left out the onion/mushroom step, but followed it otherwise, and added a little dried, minced onion. The flavor was very pleasant, and we enjoyed it.
