Very good soup. I used cumin instead of curry. Even though its been in the 90's this last week, I work in an office that is kept ice-box cold, so I enjoy soups for lunch. This soup is one that I will make often. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

This is a delightful soup; I really enjoyed all of the flavors. The curry and harissa really kicked it up a notch. Thanks for sharing! ZWT9

This recipe is quick and easy to prepare, filling, and is full of flavor. I used part curry powder and part cumin for the spice. We like spicy food, and enjoyed it with quite a bit of hot pepper paste! Made for Mike and the Appliance Killers ZWT9.
