I'm really sorry CG- this just didn't work for me at all. I made it as directed and when I tasted the soup right before the step where you add the eggs- it had very little flavour. Because my guests were arriving soon, I quickly sauteed some onions and additional garlic and threw them in with a bunch of seasoning. In the end it turned out ok, but I really had to doctor it up. I'm really sorry that I can't give it a better rating.. MG

I did it as comfort food for my cold. I used the equivalent of 2 ts of spanish smoked paprika, that's really stronger than regular paprika, and some chicken stock instead of water. May be that's where the flavor came from. I also cooked the last 15 min under the broiller.
