WOW!! This soup was amazing. It has a flavor unlike anything else I hjave ever tasted. Very exotic, sweet, but mild; great cold weather soup. This was so good I took it to work and shared it with a coworker, because I knew she would love it too. I used canned chickpeas, and added cardamon and a pinch of five star powder. My taste buds just thought the flavor would be complemented with the additions.

What a great soup, we used pumpkins as the children wanted to carve them. The flesh was scraped out so I pureed the soup for a better consistancy. It tasted like nothing I have made before, sweet, spicy and exotic. A great winter warmer that my guests really enjoyed. I used onions as I didn't have any leeks and it was still delicious. Served it with Authentic Moroccan Bread. Thank you Mirj this is nothing like hummus or Pumpkin pie, I will be making this again!

Family loved it. Blended it before serving. Note I've seen other soup recipes where the leeks are not chopped, but I quickly realized that in this recipe they should be.

This soup is great and easy to make. I substituted the leeks with onions as I did not have any leeks at home. A dollop of joghurt or sour cream on top really gives it an extra zing. Will certainly be making this one again.

Great Soup.... Sour cream really makes it Pop. Did not have leeks, onion worked just fine. Thanks

We really liked this. I used a 400g can of chickpeas, 1/2 a cinnamon stick, less honey and added a bit of cumin. We pureed the soup, dished it up & added a dollop of sour cream & cracked pepper. I don't know how it could taste ANYTHING like hummous or why you'd waste the whole lot (as Dina Meyer said)! I'd be happy to make it again.
