"To me, it tastes like warm applesauce. The other flavored are too mild. Would be okay for a starter for dinner party maybe."

"I made this this morning and had some just now and was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. Very simple to make. I'm thinking of doubling the recipe the next time I make it. I also liked the Middle Eastern aromas floating through my apartment while it was cooking."

"I was totally disappointed! It sounded so good and I love anything with curry. My husband who is like Mikie--he'll eat anything--couldn't eat it! I finally added peanut butter to it so it resembled one of my favorites--Peanut soup. Will just make that next time instead!"

"I did slightly modify - used 1 T canola oil instead of butter, and vegetable broth. Went a little light on the lemon juice. My husband says, "it's a keeper!""

"Are sunflower seeds also a part of the recipe, or are those part of whatever (crackers?) is floating on top of the soup? Looks/sounds good, however, and I plan to make it."
