“A tasty soup with lots of wonderful vegetables. If you are like me and don't have a spice grinder or a coffee grinder dedicated to spices, put the toasted seeds in a heavy-duty zip bag and crush with a mallet, sift through a sieve and then crush remaining material through sieve with the back of a spoon. I found this recipe in Cooking Light.”
