      I made this last night for supper. When my husband came home he said, "Boy, something smells good." Well, it tasted good too. The blending of the onion, garlic, paprika and cilantro really enhanced the rest of the ingredients. I served it with some crusty bread to dip in the broth. I didn't have a green pepper so I used a yellow one instead. Yum.

      Girl, this soup rules! It's so easy to make but you can't tell from the flavor. I did add a few chopped green onions to each bowl as a garnish with the green pepper and cilantro. Believe it or not, I can't wait to get sick so I can make this and test its medicinal uses! Thanks for exposing me to the flavors of the canary islands. Now I gotta book a trip! :o)

      Finally! A chicken soup for someone who doesn't eat chicken! This was very easy to make and the flavor is just right. Lots of veggies, and the rice and potatoes fill you up. I have to admit, I just dumped in the cilantro instead of tieing it. I love the stuff so much, I couldn't throw it away. Also ended up keeping the green pepper in and eating it with the soup...very yummy. The chopped cilantro and pepper sprinkled on top before serving made a nice crunchy/fresh contrast with the hot soup. Thanks canarygirl!
