  1. im having a few people over for dinner next week and am really considering making this soup: just have a few questions: is it not too sweet with the cinnemon and orange? like it doesnt taste too much of desert? and is it filling enough to be served as a main course? thanks for a great blog:) /Mary B

    • No it does not taste of dessert Mary, however I like to add fresh red chilies to garnish but have left them out to suit local taste and the umph of the chili makes it more traditionally savory of you prefer, a good Sunday to you 🙂
