I love this soup!! Very different flavors that I think work well together. If you have a bent for the unusual, you may want to give it a try.

I love this soup! I got the recipe from the Moosewood Cookbook. I can easily eat 2 bowls at a time and have to stop myself from eating more. Fortunately, it's pretty good for you. I like the extra flavor of chicken broth so I use broth in place of water, which renders it non-vegetarian, however.

Really nice & unusual. We went without the celery, used crushed chili & crushed/pureed peanuts. We might add a potato with the carrots next time, too.
