This is a very simple vegetarian soup. People from countries of Northern Africa and Arabic countries eat this soup during Ramadan. I got this recipe just today, because I needed one spice in the special middle eastern store, then I saw they had fresh bread from Iran and Turkey, so I asked the manager of the store if he could tell me something about his food, so he recommended to prepare this soup. I tried to google search more about this recipe, but most of the Chourba has lamm meat in it. My kids loved this soup! Very healthy!
