This is really good! It is a bit garlicky. Serve with good, crusty bread.

I love this soup! It's a really great change from the other soups that I've had. I used kidney beans and black beans and threw in some extra frozen vegetables as well as more cumin, soy and some extra herbs to give it a little boost. Thank you for a great recipe! I also agree with the other review that while it was nice without the lemon, the lemon juice REALLY makes this soup. Don't forget it!
