I love all the individual ingredients in this recipe, but unfortunately, I just didn't care for the final product. I followed the recipe exactly, except for the amount of spices. I was concerned with the large amount of ginger, cumin and turmeric in such a small batch of soup, so I erred on the side of caution and ended up using about 2tsp of each spice instead of 1 tbsp. Even though I used less, the spices were very overpowering. I couldn't taste the ginger, however the cumin dominated everything and the turmeric made the soup bitter. I would highly recommend starting out with 1tsp of each spice and adding more later if necessary. Someone else suggested adding lemon juice and I think that would be a great idea. Thank you for sharing your recipe Becky. I think with a few spice tweaks, it would be quite tasty.
I love this soup! Followed reviewers' suggestions and used 1 tsp of each spice and added some lemon (probably should have been lime) and fresh cilantro at the end. Had a chile pepper I had to use up so added that too. My substitutions: Used lite coconut milk and 1 can of black beans and 1 can of white beans (all I had). I found the flavor outstanding and the beautiful thing is that you just throw all the ingredients in the pot and more or less walk away until it's done. So simple. Will add this to my regular repertoire. Thanks for sharing it.
This recipe is quick, healthy, and very easy, but it is a bit bland. The other reviewer suggested cilantro, lemon and spices, so I think I'm going to make this again but with additional ingredients.
Goes together really, really quickly and tastes even better the next day. It would probably benefit from some fresh cilantro and a squeeze of lime juice to brighten up the flavors a bit, and some might want to spice it up a bit with whatever hot chiles/powders are on hand (I did not, but my tolerance for heat isn't the greatest). Adding it to my repertoire for sure.
