    Hadice's Note:

    After searching on zaar for a similar soup with no success, I found this gem on the cook's recipes website. I can't wait to make a batch for the cold autumn nights we've been having! The type of broth you use is up to you, but I'll be using veggie broth to make this soup vegetarian. You can use creamy peanut butter for a smooth texture or crunchy for a bit of extra bite. Enjoy!

      It's an odd combination, but it's surprisingly good! Instead of salsa, I used roma tomatoes, cilantro, and lime. I love the cilantro in it. I used a 15-bean combination instead of chickpeas. I also added red pepper flakes.

      Wow, what a fantastic recipe and so very close to a typical African dish. We loved, loved, loved this. I made some minimal changes. Added an extra teaspoon of cumin because it is a flavour I really love, and used only 15 ounces of salsa, which was all I had on hand. Salsa isn't really an African ingredient, but its core ingredients are, so it would be fine to make up a salsa of tomato, onion, chillies, salt and coriander. I had worried that the end result might be too thin, but it was perfect -- almost stew-like. I will make this often. A perfect dish for a cool day. Thanks so very much for posting.
