This soup doesn't begin to look like the photo. WAY too much water. I used flour to thicken, which helped a bit. Finally added some couscous to absorb some of the liquid. Taste was so bland. Added more salt and some creole seasoning, which you really couldn't taste, but it did seem to help. Probably will look for another recipe next time.
