      This is EXCELLENT. It's on my stove right now, keeping until dinner. I've already eaten a bowl because I couldn't wait! The texture of this is nice and smooth--a bit of grain depending on how finely you process the ingredients once they've cooked. Because I can never make a recipe as is, I added about four cloves of garlic and also a few red pepper flakes (probably a teaspoon.) I also used chicken stock to replace about half of the water, although I realize that changes the vegetarian part of this recipe. THANKS for posting!

      Yummy! I did alter a bit though. Instead of the spices recommemded, I used about a tablespoon of Garam Masala, half tablespoon of fresh grated ginger, and 2 teaspoons of ground cumin and salt to taste. Lovely flavors that are warm and satisfying!

      Very hearty, filling soup. Easy to make, too. I added a few cloves of garlic, and used vegetable broth for part of the liquid. Only downside is the appearance: brown puree is not the most attractive thing. Oh well, at least it tastes good!
