Directions

  1. Chop all the vegetables into medium chunks.
  2. Heat the oil in a heavy pan, and saute the vegetables together with the salt, pepper, and hot sauce for 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Add water, garbanzo beans, coriander, turmeric, and bouillon cube. Bring soup to the boil. Wash the eggs thoroughly, and add to the pan. Turn down the heat, and simmer for 30 minutes.
  4. Remove eggs, now hard-cooked; peel, slice, and add to the soup. Simmer for another 15 to 20 minutes. Serve over steamed couscous.

This is a great recipe! I only rated it four stars because I made some changes (but I'll try it as written next time): I didn't have fresh cilantro, so I used fresh parsley and mint instead, I added some minced garlic and canned tomatoes and it still turned out delicious. Oh, and I used ground cumin and hot Paprika because I didn't have turmeric. I will make this often, both with couscous and without. Thanks for sharing! UPDATE: I have made this soup quite often now, with varying ingredients (whatever I had on hand) and I really really love this recipe. It's very versatile and turns out delicious even if you substitute with whatever you have in your fridge/pantry/garden, just don't omit the hot sauce and the garbanzo beans. Bottom line: I changed my rating to five stars.

I was surprised that this soup got rave reviews by my two young girls! I honestly thought it mightve been bland. I did make my own changes tho.. such as: red peppers, no tomatoes, more eggs and chicken soup base, quinoa in place of couscous, chopped spinach at the end, oh and one star anise pod in the beginning. . Seriously my kids praised this soup and had seconds. The hot sauce was added only on an individual basis, for the sake of the kids. My mom n bro came over and each had a bowl, they loved it too. I will be making this one regularly for years to come! : )

I have made this recipe at least ten times. It is a family favorite. I usually add 4-5 eggs which helps thicken up the broth. I also use a generous amount of sriracha hot sauce. It's great.
