My favourite soup/stew recipe. It is so hearty and flavourful! I have made this recipe about 6 times. I tried making it in the slow cooker once and it turned out awful. I highly recommend making it in the pot like the directions say. I have never used pasta or eggs in the recipe. Instead of the pasta I use quinoa. I realize that this takes away from the authenticity, but it tastes so good! I put in 1-2 cups of quinoa about 45 minutes before the cooking is done. I always use extra cilantro, olive oil instead of margarine and broth (preferably beef) instead of water.
Update Feb 19/10: Used a lamb shoulder with some bits of meat on it from a left over recipe. I rubbed the lamb with the spices and browned it in a pan with some olive oil, the onions, celery, cilantro and some carrots that I added. Then I put it in a crock pot with the rest of the ingredients during the day, minus the chickpeas, lentils, quinoa and lemon juice that I added with an hour left. Update March 12: Made soup without any meat, but added extra garbanzo beans and lentils and it still tasted great!
