Best Cardamom Substitute

I am looking for the best substitute for Cardamom. I refuse to pay the exorbitant price for this spice. I've seen a few ideas on the web. I'm wondering if it's just a matter of personal preference between nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, allspice etc....I want to make a lentil soup for tonight's dinner and don't want to omit the small amount called for.
