This soup is thick and rich! Filled with lots of sliced onions and dotted with sweet peas, it's visually appealing as well as delicious.

Really easy as well as being hearty and flavorful. We really enjoyed this soup. Like another reviewer, I added more coriander and cumin for extra flavor. I would make this again. Thanks!

Loved the addition of peas and onions to this! The spices really added too. I ended up adding a bit extra of all of the spices to make it that much more flavorful. Served with chutney and grilled cheese sandwiches for a yummy meal.

This was a nicely seasoned soup that was not too heavy. I made this exactly as posted, but I did add some salt and pepper. I thought the cumin would be overpowering, but it wasn't at all. This is actually a nice summer soup! Thanks for sharing. Made for Aussie/NZ Swap #65.
