This recipe is just wonderful. It is more of a fall recipe but it was a rainy and windy day here in Madrid when just yesterday it was hot and humid. Perfect weather to get ill! I think this will be one of the last hot soups I will make for a long time! love this and maybe you will too! I found it on http://allrecipes.com To me, this is a fall and winter appetizer that would really knock your guests’ socks off!

1 tablespoon olive oil
3 shallots, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 oranges, zested and juiced
1 pinch ground cinnamon
4 cups vegetable stock
1/2 cup plain yogurt
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1/4 cup chopped cilantro(I used parsley)
