This was delicious and hearty! I found a similar recipe on the blog, Use Real Butter, and I used Israeli couscous and Greek yogurt like they recommended. Also, I omitted the preserved lemon and saffron thread. My father liked adding hot sauce to his stew. I loved the soup and I am very happy that there are leftovers! I ate it until I was stuffed and I can't wait to eat more!! Thanks for sharing.
