from the NY Times, this is very similar to the vegetable soup my own grandmother used to make. she always used dry mushrooms.

I made 2 servings using 2 large dried mushrooms (which I soaked in very hot water for 1 hr and then sliced before adding to soup) and veggie stock and the mushroom soaking water in place of the water. I added the onion with the other veggies and saved the butter and flour calories. Very light and with a good flavor. This soup and a toasted fat free cheese sandwich just hit the spot tonight.
