Moroccan Chickpea Soup

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Boo L

My housemate had left some of this in a pan and, having intended to just have a taste, I gobbled up the leftovers! Such a nice flavour! Very easy, low calorie, and ready in 20 minutes.

Great recipe and much easier than it tastes! Cumin goes great with chickpeas and the coriander and lemon juice add a wonderful fresh flavour. I used garlic powder rather than fresh garlic because I didn't realise that I used the last of the garlic for the other recipe I was making with it, though will try it will fresh garlic next time. Thanks to you and your housemate for sharing. :) Made for PAC Spring 2010.
