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.

This soup is fantastic. Even my kids will eat it! I have made it several times now, and we like it with red peppers instead of green, but it is terrific as written.
