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.
