      The flavors of this soup are amazing. It's like fireworks in your mouth. I used large couscous, because that is what I had on hand. Thank you Fairy Nuff.

      A really hearty rustic soup which passes as main meal. I followed the recipe to the T except I left out the leeks and used shallots instead also I left out the chilli and sauted the chicken with some garlic and red chili paste.Next time I will add more morrocan spice to the dish. I loved the lemoney flavour and the corriander was the "cherry" on top. Thank you for posting Fairy Nuff.
