    Sackville's Note:

    I got this from the February 2005 issue of BBC Good Food and adjusted slightly for our tastes. I'm not sure how authentically Moroccan it is (when we were there we didn't come across any soups like this) but it definitely has those north-African flavours and best of all it is super healthy for you. If you don't have harissa you can use your favourite hot sauce or chili pepper.

      We just loved this soup. It makes just the right quantity for a couple of meals for two. I made it with vegetable stock and I didn't add any broad beans or harissa, since the copy I printed off was from the Good Food Channel website and they didn't list those ingredients. I will have to try it with harissa next time. I served it with garlic-chili pita crisps.

      Loved how quick I was able to whip up a healthy homemade soup with chicken broth. I've never used harissa so didn't use. For the broad beans, I used a can of lupini beans.

      This was a very nice soup as well as being quick and easy. The only reason that I didn't give it 5 stars was my fault - I'd never used harissa before so I had no idea how hot it was. Mine was very hot! I had to add some plain yoghurt to help me be able to finish it, and that was a good combination. I'll make it again, but either without the harissa or with much less, or maybe with a bit of Tabasco instead. One other note: I wondered whether the 2 tablespoons of cumin was correct. I used 3 teaspoons because I wasn't sure. I later was able to check the original source and it used 2 teaspoons not 2 tablespoons.
