My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this soup! When making this soup, I saute'd the carrots, potatoes, and onions for 7 minutes, and only added the garlic (1 teaspoon of jarred minced garlic), the last minute of saute'ing/cooking time. For the broth/liquid, I used 4 cups of organic broth (as that's all the broth I had), plus I added 2 cups of water, and I also added 1 tablespoon of chicken bouillon granules. I brought the broth to a boil, then reduced the heat to a simmer, and cooked the vegetables for 30 minutes. I did add 1 teaspoon of salt, and a 1/4 teaspoon of ground white pepper. I loved the consistency of this soup, it was like a bisque. I found this soup yields: 10 cups. This was the 2nd time I made this soup, and I look forward to making it again. Thank you Nasseh for sharing this recipe, as this soup was quite delish!!
This is pretty good... DH didn't really like it... he said it tasted too much like vegetables!! but the kids loved it. i have two toddlers and they ate it all up. I really enjoyed it. I served it with pita croutons.
4 1/2 stars. This was good especially for DD (toddler). DH didn't eat much of it so Id say he didnt like it exceptionally. I used regular size organic carrots and yellow potatoes. I used my own homemade chicken stock and I think I added even more ground cumin to taste. It was very orange, more than French Tarts picture. I garnished it with fresh cilantro which was good. I may make this again just for a change but probably not since DH wasnt enthusiastic about it. Made for Ramadan Tag.
I loved the flavors of this soup. The cumin was wonderful with the onion and carrot. The potatos made this very creamy without adding the dairy or fat of cream. A very nice, easy soup to make.
This is wonderful. My husband does not eat onion so it was obviously lacking a little taste when I sampled it. So I threw in some roasted red peppers and blended again. I am sure it is fabulous made just as written but w/ the adjustment we enjoyed it very much!! Thanks for a great recipe. Will definately make again.
This is a good recipe and got mixed reviews from my family, based on personal tastes. I personally did not like the cumin taste, but others in my family loved it. I actually used cauliflower in place of the potatoes for a lower carb option, and I skipped the oil to lower the fat. I used about 24 oz of cauliflower and had to add 2 more cups of broth to compensate. It was very easy to make. Thank you for posting this, and I am glad to have tried it.
I loved the Middle Eastern flavours with the soup, just by adding the cumin and no cream - great soup thanks! I used vegetable broth and also added a couple of slices of courgette that I had - then whizzed it all up together, before reheating. We ate this with home-made flat breads for a delicious and healthy lunch! Made for photo tag - thanks Nasseh! FT:-)
A wonderfully flavoursome soup, so quick and easy to make - and everone who ate it loved it! Except for doubling the garlic, I made this exactly to the recipe. Loved the cumin in this. Next time I make this, I thinl I'll add some spinach and some wine. Thanks for sharing this recipe, Nasseh!
Very flavorful soup, and nice texture! It was a great soup for Ramadan. Thanks!
