Moroccan Vegetable Soup (Chorba)

September/October 2008

Your rating: None Average: 3.9 (70 votes)

Hearty with chunks of beef or lamb, plenty of vegetables and a bit of pasta, this Moroccan soup gets its rich, golden-orange color from turmeric.

Disappointed

I was looking forward to eating this soup but was disappointed. I used lamb and the soup was very blah! I guess I must like spicy food.

Use beef instead and two

Use beef instead and two pinches of saffron. Are you using fresh parsley and cilantro? That makes a difference too.

Find an Indian grocery store for saffron, you'll pay less than 1/3 of the price in a regular supermarket. I pay $6 instead of $20.

This is one of my favorite vegetable soups. I'm a vegetarian so I omit the meat and use chickpeas instead. My husband adds meat into his portion, which makes it a great meal for both of us to share and enjoy. The turnips are great in this, so if you're not sure if you like them, give them a try!

Not one of our favorites from Eatingwell.com. While the beef was very tender, the soup itself was a bit flavorless. We didn't get the "earthy" taste in our broth that a previous comment posted. It was a let down considering the time put into the dish. Will probably not try again.
