Yemenite Bean Soup

When DH and I were dating we used to eat at a wonderful little restaurant called Maabhat that had this amazing bean soup that we both loved. Well I finally decided to duplicate it and this is my version. Unlike most Yemenite soups that call for hawaaj, this recipe gives the actual spices used; not a blend but if you can find hawaj then use that until the soup tastes just right. The spices given are approximations since I do not measure the amount of water exactly which can affect the taste so add more cumin, cardamom, and salt as needed.
