While I chose this recipe based on its short cooking time, the results made for a very tasty soup. I used ground cumin and it came out fine. I also did not puree it as to keep some of the texture. Thanks for a very good lunch - I will be making this again.
I had to use chicken boullion and dried cumin powder since that was all I had. It was pretty good and easy to make too. I would like to try it again with the real cumin seeds and see if it makes it even better. Thanks
The combo of cummin seed and caramelised onions make this soup a winner. I just love the soup season and I'll be adding this one to my "to make again" list. Do take the time to caramelise your onions over the stated 35 mins or so. I made the recipe as stated this time but will add more cummin seed next time (personal pref) Thanks for sharing.
I tried this soup for the first time a long time ago and have been meaning to write a review b/c it was a surprising delicious soup. The ingredients, especially the caramilized onions turned a boring pea soup into a bowl of wonderful flavors. My mother-in-law from the middle east makes a lentel soup with onions that the whole family loves, and I noticed the taste was almost identical, but this soup was even better!
