WOW ~Nimz~, this was really easy and VERY delicious. DD even ate it and she hardly ever eats anything with tomatoes or okra in it. DH loved it, and so did I. It smelled especially good cooking. I must admit, I did it all in one pot as I was not feeling up to par, and wanted to make it even easier than it was :) I also added 1/2 teaspoon of cumin, but other than that I followed the recipe as written. Thanks ~Nimz~ for the great recipe. Made for ~Nimz~ win for Football Pool 2008, Week #8.

I really liked this soup. It's very easy to put together making it a perfect weeknight dinner. It does make a lot, though. It didn't all fit into my soup pot so I had to ladle some of the potatoes into the serving dishes and ladle the soup over them. Edited to add: I had to upgrade to 5 stars. DH has been raving about how the soup gets better everyday since making it and he wants me to make it again.

This soup was fantastic! It went together so easily and I love the combination of flavors. I don't care for okra so just used regular tomatoes, otherwise made as specified. We really loved this soup and I will be making it often!
