This healing vegetarian matzah ball soup delivers all the "ah" of its traditional cousin with precisely the right amount of goodness (and good-for-you-ness) thanks to a clever use of shiitake mushrooms, tomato paste, and a pot full of seasonal vegetables. Season with salt and pepper and remove from the heat. Allow the soup to stand off the heat for two hours or longer  to develop flavor. Just before serving, add the dill and heat the soup through. Add more water if the vegetables seem crowded, then adjust the seasonings.
