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.
