Made my own chicken stock beforehand, which probably made a difference. Recycled the celery from the stock for the soup, but left out carrots from the recipe to fit my personal tastes a little better. I didn't have parsley, so I'll have to use it next time. If you do the optional flour mix, you'll end up with a gruel, if you leave the flour mix out, you might want to make some rice to make the soup heartier. I only used in 2/3 of a cup of flour but about 5 tablespoons of butter for the mixture, and the soup thickened right up. The cumin and cayenne pepper are delicious, but I can't really taste the coriander. All in all delicious, hearty and a great substitute for meat dishes, especially during lent. I can't wait to make this soup for my family!
