      A very delicious and satisfying soup! We all agreed, though, that the "juice of two lemons" was too much. Next time I'll use about half that. We liked the egg, though. The unusual mix of herbs and spices blended very well to make this soup stand out in the crowd. We're trying to cut down on meat and get more beans into our diets so are glad to find this good vegetarian meal. Thanks, Mirj, for a great recipe!

      This was delicious and filling. It made a wonderful healthy, hearty meal with some crusty bread and a side salad. I did not change a thing. I will definitely make this one again!
