Meat Addition review: I was looking for a 15 bean soup recipe and found this gem. I added 2 lbs of Italian pork sausage (because that's what I had) cooked up with spices and the onion. I added fresh green beans cut into 1/4 inch pieces, corn and fresh tomatoes along with 2 cups of dry mixed lentils and no canned beans. I didn't add quinoa, because I didn't have any on hand right now, but love the cilantro in it. This is a great base recipe, you can leave it as is or add to it as you want to. I would have liked to have some seasoned diced tomatoes in the pantry, but the fresh turned out fine (and are healthier, too). I had limes, in lieu of lemons, and squeezed them on top, but lemon would probably give better flavor to this recipe. I'm going to add a dallop of sour cream to mine... Either way, it's hard to go wrong. Mine is good, but I look forward to trying this again when I have more of the original recipe ingredients on hand. Don't be afraid to mix it up!
Great soup and very easy to prepare. I didn't have any cilantro but luckily added some after cooking. Cilantro really makes the soup.
Delicious! Healthy and full of flavor.
I picked this recipe even though it had only a few reviews because I needed something high in fiber and protein that even my rambunctious 15 month old would eat and an easy reheat meal. It's wonderful! It was a little heavy on cilantro, but I wasn't even turned off by it. People who don't care for that taste in every bite should probably cut the amount to 3/4 or even half a bunch. I made do with just ground cinnamon. I HIGHLY recommend the optional quinoa (note: it does absorb a lot of the broth so you may want to add 2 more cups of stock after adding the quinoa), and I added hot kielbasa sausage for my Hunny, which I sautéed with the onions, and the sausage soaked up the flavors of the spices and broth rather than staying hot. Next time I might consider adding chopped spinach for the sake of some green nutrition because I think the other flavors would easily mask that bitter "green" taste some people dislike (like my toddler ;). This is such a great staple to have in my recipe box that I can add to and modify as I like.
Wonderful flavoring. Great standalone soup or stew. Can thin or thicken as desired.
Very tasty. I suggest using a *small* bunch of cilantro; otherwise, the flavor overpowers the other ingredients.
