Moroccan Chickpea Soup

Making a vegetable-based soup is fairly straightforward but after a while it requires a bit of pizazz. One way to provide that extra bit of spice and zest is by giving it a Middle Eastern flavour just like we have here in our Moroccan Chickpea Soup…

The Meat Version?

If you’re craving meat and want to turn this vegetarian meal into something for meat-eaters then take two chicken breasts for four people and poach in water with a few bay leaves until just cooked. Take two forks and roughly shred the chicken into flaky chunks. Just before serving, mix your chicken in with the soup to coat and enjoy.
