This is so perfect! I’m really impressed with the flavor profile and I even left out the celery because I didn’t have it. I loved it how it was, but added about 1/2 cup of coconut milk at the end for a little creaminess. I can’t stop eating it! I’ll definitely be making this again!

AMAZINGLY wonderful complex flavors! I followed the pressure cooker directions but since my chickpeas were dry I cooked for 30 minutes and natural released for 30 minutes. I used Halo No Beef vegan broth to tie into the traditional flavors of using lamb and added more garlic cloves than instructed as is my tradition. Himalayan salt to taste and lawd this is good!

Excellent as is, needs no doctoring. My carnivore crew liked it and ate thirds.

This turned out really delicious. Even my 8yr old loved it. (they picked out the tomato chunks, but ate everything else; I would use tomato sauce instead of crushed tomatoes next time to avoid the pickiness.

Might’ve done something wrong myself

This was really tasty 😀 I crushed fresh tomatoes instead of using canned ones. I also used a bit of siracha and chili garlic sauce because I couldn’t find the harissa in the store. I upped the amount of cumin and tumeric a bit as I added water. Overall this was easy to make, spicy and flavorable, and healthy.

Very nice flavor… the lemon wedges and cilantro bring the spice to another level

A lot of flavor and great combination of textures... liquid, crunch, soft. yum! The only thing I did differently was that I added two extra stocks of celery.

Very good! Lots of flavor in this soup. I did not have harissa, so I substituted 1 Tbsp chili powder and some red pepper flakes.

Good stuff!! Followed the comment from the other reviewer and added carrots; nice suggestion.. Ran it in a pressure cooker according to suggested time and it came out perfect. Easy prep and cook for return on flavour. Had some upgrades that really pushed the flavours up. -Made fresh chicken stock -Vegetable stock cube -Crème fraîche (super fatty local farm) -15% addition on all spices

Great! Just added carrots and Ras El Hanout for extra greatness as they did in Morocco.
