      I used all the spices, except didn't have any nutmeg. I didn't have vegetable broth so I used a combo of tomato juice and chicken broth. Also added a can of corn and 1/2 cup pasta. Oh, and my family likes meat, so I also cut up a left over bratworst for a little meat. We all liked it.

      I'm so impressed with this soup! Honestly, once I really started looking at the ingredient list, I was a little worried about the spice combination (cloves and ginger?!?!)....but the flavor was amazing! Wonderfully different and oh-so pleasing to the nose and the pallet. The flavors blended together perfectly and though the spices were certainly not lost in the soup, I did not find them to be at all overpowering as I had worried about. Both my picky BF and my good friend who is a vegetarian enjoyed it immensly. I used a can of organic, fire roasted tomatoes, added a little sliced carrot and substituted Mexican oregano in place of the regular oregano. I also omitted the dried cilantro and doubled the amount of fresh, chopped cilantro at the end and served with a dollop of sour cream. Made for ZWT5 Family Picks. This one's a keeper. Thank you for posting!
