Very tasty and unusual soup! There's garlic mentioned in the instructions but not the ingredients, so I used two cloves and added cooked them with the celery and onion. For the beans, I used cannellini, and for the optional frozen veg, I used peas. I think the dried chili flakes are a must. The heat of the chili really helps to balance out the sweetness of the pineapple, apples and raisins. I used about 1 1/2 tablespoons of the chili and added a healthy dose of salt. We still felt it was missing something though. I'm not sure what yet. I'll play with the leftovers a bit and try to figure it out. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Spring 2010.
