We tried it and liked it. I cut back a bit on the maple syrup and added a little extra garlic. This is an inherently delicate tasting soup, not one with a sharp taste or bite. Try a spicey black bean soup if that's what you prefer.

This recipe ended up tasting bland and was a waste of my time, we disliked it so much that we're not even going to serve it to our Thanksgiving guests!
