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.

I made this but with fresh cooked beetroot in too and without the broadbean... the beatroot and fresh parsley are fab combo

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!
