Easy, fast and delicious. Threw in half a chorizo from the fridge and added a teaspoon of middle eastern spice blend the same time as the cumin. Served with toasted lebanese bread.

Lovely recipe, I left out the broad beans as I didn't have any but it still turned out chunky and filling. Will be using again

I thought this was really delicious, the flavours went so well together. The only complaint my bf had was that there was no meat and that he at first thought there was too much cumin, but I thought the cumin was just right. :) I left out the broad beans, and put in some sweet potato. Will definitely make again.

Absolutely delicious! Am always a little apprehensive when it comes to making homemade soups that call for cans of tomatoes as they can often end up tasting a little 'samey'....but this was a real exception. Lovely zingy flavours and great textures. Added a good few tablespoons of harissa for extra kick but I'm sure it would've been pretty pleasing without it.

Quite a good dish, but reducing it made it a bit salty. Not sure as whether I reduced it too much, but added some sugar to neutralize it a bit. Other then that, excellent dish :D family loved it!

I made it without broad beans, but it still was delicious. And so easy to make - definitely deserves five stars.

As I am not a lover of cumin, I did a slight variation of this recipe using Smoked Spanish Paprika Hot (Pimenton De La Vera). Also some girdled chorizo topping this is perfect.

We all loved it! A hearty tasty and well balanced soup.
I made a "not too spicy" version for the children, and older ones added some cayenne pepper, that brought out the tastes wonderfully.

Mmmmmm! I found it a bit thin so I used passata instead of a can chopped tomatoes and half the veg stock, lovely and creamy. I also put a tbsp of harissa spices to give it a kick. Its great if you are calorie counting too!

I really enjoyed this, I'm doing weight watchers and this worked about about 5 points per bowl and it was soooo yummy and quite filling, i had to omit the broad beans as I didn't have any but still really enjoyed it. I have recommended it to all my dieting friends too!
