It's a very elegant, lovely looking soup. Tomatoes, carrots, and spinach give it vibrant color, and cinnamon, ginger, and curry powder create an enticing smell as this soup simmers on the stove.
I have to tell you, I've never tasted a soup like this before in my life. The spices that smelled so powerful (disturbingly so) as it cooked were very subtle in the end. The recipe called for the juice of 1/2 to 1 lemon. I used an entire lemon, and I think next time I would probably cut back to 1/2. And I added lots and lots of salt and pepper because it seemed a little bland at first. Overall, I enjoyed this soup and would make it again, but I don't think it will become a favorite.
It was a millet day today, I guess. My throat has felt icky for some days now, so this morning I made Millet-Amaranth Porridge from Vive! to soothe it. No picture, sorry, but it looks exactly as it did when I made it before. I toasted some almonds to sprinkle on top this time, and that was a nice addition.
Maybe I'll cook again this week... maybe not though. Wednesday our fall break begins, and Bob and I are going down to Orlando, Florida with some friends to visit some people and to go to Disney World. We'll probably cook a little while we're down there, but I am not sure really. Anyway, I'll definitely post again when I return, if not sooner!
One last thing: I took this quiz, and here are the results:
