An interesting soup, not an unqualified success. I like all of the components of this soup, and I think a little tweaking will make the soup more to our liking. The cumin was a bit overpowering, to our taste, and I would definitely reduce the amount. I added a bay leaf to the chicken as it poached, took out the thighs and then added the cumin etc. I did not have fresh or dried cilantro. Next time i would add only the white part of the green onions and hold off the green parts until just before serving. I did hold back the spinach and added it very near the end, as I don't like the spinach overcooked.

Very good and filling. I used mini chicken/cilantro wontons from Trader Joes in this yummy soup and fresh cilantro rather than dried cilantro. Thanks for sharing!
