    From Oprah magazine, March 2007. Don't skip the garbanzo beans. They add a good texture contrast.

      Very flavorful and hearty - definitely a winner! I didn't add salt because the broth had plenty. Also I added some extra broth because it got very thick.

      This is delicious and healthy. I would love to serve this at our next Indian cook fest. This is also a great lunch soup with a slice of wholesome bread. Thanks, Debbie R! Made for Vegetarian Recipe Swap.

      Wow - this packs a whole lot of flavor for such an easy-to-make soup! I made this exactly as posted, except I used my immersion blender to puree half the soup in the pot. I would definitely encourage adding the thinned yogurt, jalapeno , and lime because they each add a unique facet of flavor. I tasted some soup with and without them, and even though the soup is delicious on its own, and really takes it up a notch by using those ingredients. A wonderful soup that I will most certainly make again! Made for ZWT 8.
