    threeovens's Note:

    A wonderful soup from Morocco that is rich enough to serve as both a soup and a stew. It is made either with Saffron or Tumeric. I broke down and splurged on the Saffron. It cost about $16.00 for a small jar. But guess what, you don't use very much at all. It is not as expensive as you thing, since you only use a couple of strands per recipe. So, live a little.

      Very tasty but not very soupy. More like a casserole. Easy & yummy regardless. Made for NA/ME travels to Morocco 12/12!

      You are right - this is a wonderful soup/stew! I made exactly as written, used saffron and would not change a thing. I served pita bread along with it. Made by Unrulies under the Influence / ZWT6
