      Another recipe that FAR surpassed my expectations! The combination of ingredients in this recipe is absolutely wonderful and the spices compliment each other perfectly! The only change I made was in using fresh tomatoes instead of canned. This made a delicious dinner with bread and cheese. Thanks SO MUCH Tish! I'm gonna make this a lot!

      Terrific comfort soup, the recipe instructions mentioned cumin, but it wasn't included in ingredients, so threw in 2 teaspoons. Tasty, filling and healthy. Will definitely be making this soup again.

      This made an excellent soup, Tish. I also used fresh tomatoes instead of canned. A nice blend of spices and textures. Husband and I took this to work for lunch. Very filling, hearty, flavorful, and best of all, healthy. Thanks for sharing it.
