    s-t's Note:

    This is my version of a very tasty soup recipe that was in the local newspaper. It's a good idea to make the vegetables all about the same size dice, they cook evenly that way. I used half chicken stock and half water, but I'm sure that vegetable stock would be great too that way the soup could be kosher and or vegetarian!

      This is a fabulous and healthy recipe. I found it when I went searching for a recipe like the one served at a local Middle Eastern restaurant we frequent. This soup is healthy, but hearty--not a thin broth with a few sad vegetables floating in it like so many "healthy" soups. It is extremely well-seasoned, with just a little "kick" from the cayenne. I followed the recipe exactly, except that I cut the vegetable oil in half to cut the fat and calories, and it turned out great! Next time I'll try just one tablespoon, and I'll use olive oil. I didn't have a immersion blender, so I just blended it in batches in my regular blender, which worked fine. I left very little unblended, because I wanted a mostly smooth, creamy soup. The plain yogurt was a great addition, and made for a nice presentation with the sprinkled parsley. The soup also freezes well. This recipe is going to be in my regular rotation! Thanks for posting!

      I should have reviewed this before now! This is great! I stir the yogurt right into the soup, so that it's a bit creamy. This soup smells delish while it is cooking, and tastes even better. Very warming and filling. I wouldn't change a thing - this is delicious! Thank you s-t!
