OMG! My husband is Kurdish, (he has been in the states only 2 years) and we fight about the Carrots all the time, he says and I quote "Carrots are for Jam or pickles, not the food and oh there OK if you eat them raw by them self's, nothing else"

A tasty and simple to prepare soup. I cheated and added canned chickpeas , which I added towards the end (reducing the overall cooking time by about half). I also doubled the tomato paste and added a heaped tablespoon of good veg stock powder. The dried whole chillies added a nice amount of heat. Reviwed for Fall PAC 2008
