I didn't care for the cinnamon, and I used parsley rather than cilantro. I liked the thickness and the color was gorgeous. I will try it again with a few tweaks for my taste, but then it won't have the North African taste. Thanks, I enjoyed trying this.
Made & reviewed for Ramadan Tag 2009 in the NA*ME forum. This soup was a triumph! I made it for dinner last night & stuck to the recipe apart from adding a little dried mint & some cubed roast lamb at the end. It really is a true flavour of North Africa, for this mix of flavours I would strongly advise only using cilantro to keep the authentic flavour. My North African husband thought this was lovely & the whole family wolfed it down! Thanks Mikekey for a fab recipe :)
Great mid week soup - easy and warming, using pantry ingredients which is a plus in itself. I used parsley and cilantro from my garden. I like the way you can alter the fluid to make almost a vegie casserole. Made for ZWT9.
This was good. I made mine more like a stew since I didn't add in that much water. Unfortunately I didn't have any cilantro or parsley on hand so I couldn't use that.
