This soup is FLAVORTABULOUS! It is NUTRITIOUS DELICIOUS CHEERFUL AND COLORFUL! I made it as directed simmering the spices in a few tablespoons of broth first. I used 2 (14oz) cans of chicken broth. I only used 1/8 tsp of chili flakes as I am very sensitive to peppers. I thought in the beginning that I would regret not adding onion or garlic...nope...it didn't need them!...I wondered if I would want to add lemon juice to my bowl...nope...didn't need that either! This soup is bursting with flavor and you just feel good eating it. It could be made Vegan by using vegetable broth. Freddy Cat HIGHLY RECOMMENDS it!
