A question about a recipe: Turkish Lentil Soup with Baby Spinach

I have a question about the recipe "Turkish Lentil Soup with Baby Spinach" from onetribegourmet. If you wanted to make this soup without paprika (or any chili or bell pepper ingredient), what would you use instead? Thanks, everyone. ;o)

I would try a bit of dill, personally, as I think it goes so well with many of the soup's ingredients.

I think there are enough flavors going on in this soup that you can leave out those ingredients with no serious effects. Looks like a goodie to me!

I think I would just leave it out -- maybe the sumac (and the garlic, parsley, lemon, tomato) will come into sharper focus!

It's only a 1/4 of a teaspoon so I'd probably just leave it out.
