Delicious soup! I made it exactly as written except I left out the portobello mushrooms. The homemade croutons were wonderful and added a nice rustic touch.
In response to patriotsgrl, skip the coutons and parmesan cheese, if using butter, make sure is unsalted, and most of all skip using that packaged soup mix. Use low or no sodium chicken broth and your seasonings like basil, pepper, oregano, parsley, thyme, a bay leaf and salt to your taste.
I would really like to make this soup is there a way that the sodium can be reduced, 2,164 mg is a bit hard to swallow.
