"Posted from a Sparkpeople challenge for healthy recipes. I've made this but not recently. About time since corn is in season again! From: Steven Raichlen's Healthy Latin Cooking Epazote- I haven't had this and it turned out OK. Other names for it: Pigweed, wormseed, lamb's quarters, goosefoot and Jerusalem oak. He claims there is no substitute but I'm guessing thyme or oregano would work."

"This is a great and tasty soup! Love the roasting of the poblano, onion and garlic - I think it really added a lot to the flavor. I used Mexican oregano instead of the epazote. The chili powder (mine was hot) and squeeze of lime were a great finishing touch for the soup. Thanks for sharing the recipe!"
"Followed the recipe with one exception ~ Since my vegetarian son & DIL were at the table, I made it with a homemade vegetable stock rather than with chicken broth! Even found the epazote at a local Mexican market, so that was no problem! I did use the green pepper, but that was an "either/or" kind of thing! Anyway, it made for a very tasty corn soup, not like some we've had, for sure, but certainly worthy of being made again! Thanks for posting the recipe! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]"
