Superb. Instead of cumin try Ras el hanout for a truly unctous Moroccan soup!

I found this soup on the bland side and too runny so added a fresh chilli and blitzed it in the liquidiser which thickened it up.

This soup is delicious, the flavours all work well together! I've made this a couple of times and is great for lunch or dinner in the cold winter months!

I was surprised how delicious this was! I didn't add the broad beans as i'm not a fan but followed the rest of the recipe easily. Excellent!

I made this but added scallops and prawns and it was delicious. Also added the harissa paste. One thing I forgot to do is peel the broad beans...it would have been perfect otherwise!

Very tasty ideal for a cold day either for lunch or starter. For dinner we just added chicken which was great and so filling especially if on a diet. Try it now you won't regret it.

Wonderful recipe my husband loved it, made it with frozen soya beans as I didn't have any broad beans and I'll try spinach or kale next time. Also made double the recipe and put it in the freezer - brilliant standby.

Picked this recipe because I was in a rush and it seemed quick, so wasn't expecting great things. Was very pleasantly surprised - a good, tasty, hearty soup that left my housemates demanding more!

Would definitely recommend this and will be making again

Tasty, didn't have any broad beans so went for spinach. Might have overdone it on the chilli, but still tastes great. I also had to cook it for a bit longer than it said.

I am having this soup now for lunch! I made it a couple of days ago and it is absolutely lush!
I added a bit of Ras El Hanout spice mix as well for a real morroccan taste and a tiny bit of chilli powder. Also i didnt have chopped tomatoes with garlic so i used a tin of normal chopped tomatoes and added some garlic puree. Also didnt have broad beans so threw in some fresh runner beans and its fab. Will be making this regularly!
