Based on 80 ratings

"This traditional Moroccan soup is made from a variety of vegetables with lentils, chickpeas, and coriander. It is fantastic on its own, but it is also delicious with flatbread to scoop up the soup solid ingredients. Wonderfully fragrant with zesty seasoning, which makes it very popular in Moroccan restaurants. "
