This is a simple and satisfying vegetarian vegetable soup from Iraq. I found the recipe on a website I belive is called sudairy.com, a collection of MIddle Eastern recipes. Everyone who ahs tried it has enjoyed it. I believe it is low in fat and calories, and it's simple to prepare. I did modify the original recipe slightly.

I made this for dinner two nights back. I used 2 carrots, 1 potato, 1 medium onion, 3 cloves crushed garlic, 1 cup finely chopped corriander leaves, 1/2 tbsp. grated ginger, 4 cups water, salt to taste, jeera powder and black pepper powder. It turned out nice. My suggestion is to mash all the veggies after it has come to a boil, sieve it and then serve the soup.
