Smooth and filling soup. Rather healthy, too. I used a few extra cloves of garlic. The end result was actually way too thick (like pudding), so added extra broth. I was a bit disappointed in the flavor. It was actually a little bland. I think adding some cumin or garam masala would make it work better for me. Thanx for posting!
