Excellent soup recipe. I like the use of orange juice. It seemed to cut some of the acidity from the tomato juice. The spices were outstanding and gave the overall flavor a Mediterranean influence. I thought it was cool and refreshing. I had it for lunch 3 days last week and found it very satisfying. Thanks for posting.
