North African Soup (Vegetarian) created by katew

A vegetarian version of an African favorite. If you want to make it non-vegetarian, chunks of lamb or beef can be added. Just brown them with the onions.

directions

  • Heat olive oil in a Dutch oven type pan over medium heat. Fry the onions until tender in the olive oil.
  • Stir in the paprika. Add about 1 cup water to prevent onions and paprika from burning.
  • Add carrots, garlic, tomato paste, tomatoes, cilantro (or parsley), turmeric and cinnamon and more water to cover.
  • Simmer until the carrots begin to get slightly tender; add the potatoes and more water, if necessary, to cover. Simmer for about 1/2 hour.
  • Add garbanzo beans and lemon juice. Adjust the amount of broth by adding more water if necessary. Simmer until beans are heated through.
  • Adjust flavor by adding salt and pepper, if needed.
  • Divide between 2 large bowls and garnish with cilantro or parsley.

    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.

    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.
