This ended up as a tasty, hearty, vegetarian soup following the advice of other reviewers: added garlic, more carrots and celery, dry sherry and Sirucha hot pepper sauce. I used 4 portobello mushroom caps, home made vegetable broth, 3 Tbs. brown basmati rice and 3 Tbs red lentils and simmered for about an hour an a half until the brown rice was soft and the lentils disintegrated.
This made it acceptable for South Beach Diet phase 2. I may try to make it creamy by imersion blending it with the fat free half and half I impulsively purchased in a SBD shopping frenzy.
