    I think the spice blend was accidentally left off the recipe? Cooked the onions with tumeric, cinammon, nutmeg, ginger, red pepper, allspice. Served with lemon wedge.

    This was an easy, hearty soup for a cold evening. I made some changes: I did not use any tomato paste, added 3/4 tsp cumin, 1/4 tsp coriander, 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper, used peas instead of lima beans, and carrots instead of celery. It turned out great! Served with baked cumin tortilla chips.

    This was ok, but definitely has potential with some tweaking. I wouldn't say it is "richly flavored with sultry seasonings", the flavors are very subtle, but good -- interesting. Next time I will add some crushed red pepper to give it a little kick, and that shouldn't interfere with the other flavors.

    The soup is definitely flavorful, healthy and tasted great when either the lemon wedge is squeezed in or lemon juice liberally added.

    My family (including 2 picky kids) loved this recipe. Instead of expensive saffron, I subbed coriander. Delicious and hearty. Made with Moroccan Country Bread for a perfect meal. Used considerably less onion than called for because kids aren't crazy about onion. This will be part of our family repertoire.
