      I loved this, but I can see how if you're not into unusual spice combinations it might not be your thing. If you like Moroccan food, I think you'd like this. I actually cheated a bit and used leftover mashed potato and turnip from our Thanksgiving dinner. The cinnamon and chilli powder turn this soup from ordinary into special, in my opinion.

      This soup was easy to make, but just not my thing. It was an unusual spice combination for soup, which I just didn't find enjoyable.
