After tweaking this to calm down what appears to be errors in measuring, I ended up with an absolutely delicious soup. This posted recipe has several errors. First, the amount of chili flakes spikes the heat to a level that renders it uneatable. Trust me, start with a pinch and work up. Also, for the veggie sauté portion, an entire head of garlic is excessive. Two cloves is adequate and permeates the soup beautifully. I don't know WHAT the chef was thinkin'. Also, there are various versions of Ubuntu's chef Aaron London's creation, including the ones posted by PETA, New York Times Magazine, Foodily, Yummly, and other sites. All are wacked up.
