    Absolutely delicious. Had seconds and had to stop myself from having thirds. I am not a vegetarian, but I’m trying to eat less meat. With the tasty combination of lentils and chickpeas along with the great flavors and spices, I didn’t miss the meat at all.

    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

    Very tasty. Used chicken broth and added chicken. Couldn't find Harissa but it still tasted good

    Delicious, the whole family enjoyed, though I skipped cinnamon and added Couscous, mushrooms and potatoes 😊

    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.
