    too much soy sauce in the recipe - I'd half it!  -  20 Oct 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Nice soup... needed a bit more salt for me. I tried this with regular milk , yogurt as well as coconut milk.. all delicious  -  14 Aug 2016  (Review from Allrecipes India)


    Mmmmmmm, yummy! I double the garlic powder and cumin and add a little extra soy sauce to give it more flavor. And it is also great served over tabouli!  -  27 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
