    Tasty. Adding tomato sauce, as someone suggested, would ruin it in my opinion. How about adding a few mushrooms instead of artichoke hearts and fresh peas instead of frozen? - 7/8/10

    I will make this the first cooler day we get. I want to use fresh basil and garden diced tomatoes as a garnish. And sub edemmae for the peas. I'm using yellow squash AND some zucchini seeing it is summertime. I'll use just zucchini in the winter months. Scallions. This is a great recipe. Thank! - 7/8/10

  • think real onion and real garlic, along with fresh peas, would help. Needs a little more salt, think cilantro would add to it also. - 7/9/10

  • Sounds great! I am looking forward to trying this recipe. I will probably partially blend it because I find that thickens soup nicely while still leaving some nice chunks to munch on. - 7/9/10
