    I followed this exact recipe (which I rarely do), but really didn’t like this soup at all. As I was making it n the first day while on the stove, it tasted really good and my family loved it as well, but the next day n every day thereafter, I hated it. Just too strong of a cumin-like taste and didn’t go right. Def won’t make with these seasonings again.

    Great base recipe. Added extra quinoa as per other reviewer, and it was very stew-like. Will add more heat next time.

    This was good, very easy to make, very flavorful and he acts like healthy. Next time I might slightly increase the quantity of the quinoa as it was barely discernible and got overwhelmed by the other ingredients.

    Decent base. I wanted more of a stew so I added more quinoa. I added more lime, Worcestershire, red pepper and kale instead of zucchini as well. I also used fresh tomatoes so had to cook those down a bit longer. It's also pretty good with tortilla chips.

    Good. Good flavor, pretty easy to make.
