About this recipe: This is a vegetarian stock that I serve over couscous. It's also good on its own. Hard-boiled eggs can be added according to the number of people being served.
Something else. did not have couscous, so served with some cheese bread, worked fine tasty & filling. - 08 Sep 2010

This is a great recipe! I only rated it four stars because I made some changes (but I'll try it as written next time): I didn't have fresh cilantro, so I used fresh parsley and mint instead, I added some minced garlic and canned tomatoes and it still turned out delicious. Oh, and I used ground cumin and hot Paprika because I didn't have turmeric. I will make this often, both with couscous and without. Thanks for sharing! UPDATE: I have made this soup quite often now, with varying ingredients (whatever I had on hand) and I really really love this recipe. It's very versatile and turns out delicious even if you substitute with whatever you have in your fridge/pantry/garden, just don't omit the hot sauce and the garbanzo beans. Bottom line: I changed my rating to five stars. - 18 Jun 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
