Has good flavor and it is very hearty. I added a 1/4 tsp of white pepper due to personal preference.

Pretty bland. Won't make again.

This soup was delicious! I couldn't bring myself to use canned lima beans, though. I began cooking my frozen baby limas in water seasoned with Better than Bouillon and after about 7 minutes added the potatoes and onions. At the end, I drained the vegetables and saved all the broth. Sure was glad I did because in order for it to be soup, I ended up returning ALL the broth to the mixture. I was afraid to add the cumin but did. It gave it a very nice flavor. I did omit the coriander because I was out. One of the guests I served this to wanted the recipe, so that says much about how it turned out.
