I ended up using a quart of veggie broth.  I think it was a good amount of liquid, but my boyfriend said it could've done with a little less.  I didn't have a zucchini, so I used two carrots instead.  For the mushrooms, I used one portobello cap.  We liked this a lot!  :)

DELICIOUS!!! Very tasty & satisfying. I'm keeping this recipe.

It was very thick & I added extra broth too.

Keda's picture is once again gorgeous, so I didn't take a pic.

very rich and tasty!  ;)b
it was too thick though, more like a stew. so i added 6 cups of water (it didn't even need stock because it's so flavourful). i'm cutting back on salt so i didn't use it at all and still enjoyed it. thanks!
