A wonderful soup from Morocco that is rich enough to serve as both a soup and a stew. It is made either with Saffron or Tumeric. I broke down and splurged on the Saffron. It cost about $16.00 for a small jar. But guess what, you don't use very much at all. It is not as expensive as you thing, since you only use a couple of strands per recipe. So, live a little.
