    Jostlori's Note:

    This is a wonderfully spiced and filling soup. Mmmmm, wish we had a winter around here... This is North African comfort food at it's best. Serve with toasted pita or Morrocan flat bread drizzled with a bit of good quality olive oil. If you're not crazy about cloves, like my DH, you can reduce to 1/4 tsp and adjust from there.

      This was so easy to put together, and it made my kitchen smell like a million bucks! The carnivores in my family enjoyed it very much, and even my anti-meat toddler went to town on the chickpeas and slightly sweet broth. The clove in particular was a lovely addition. I'm not sure it is traditional, but we strained off some of the broth and served it over buttered couscous. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT 9, for a fellow Gourmet Goddess.
