I have to admit that this was a recipe I actively googled for the project. I've made this soup, from one of the Covent Garden Soup Company's recipe books, a few times before, and I love it so much it was something I had to actively seek out again. Thankfully I found that somebody had actually made it, so thank you to Ale at The Dim Sum Diaries for helping me cheat a little!
And here's what I made:
In deference to my friend Annabella who actually lives in Morocco, I have to say that I have absolutely no idea if the person that wrote the recipe is Moroccan, or has even been to Morocco, but the fabulous mixture of spices and the sweetness from honey, raisins and lemons says North Africa to me, so I'm not querying the name ;o)
I used chicken breast and a wild rice mixture, but otherwise as per the original recipe. I don't bother with the yoghurt to serve it, it's a fabulous combination without it, and that feels like it would be a step too far somehow.
Ease Of Preparation:
Pretty much all this requires is chopping, and throwing things into a soup pot at relevant intervals, so not at all difficult. I find it tastes better the following day, or even after a stint in the freezer.
I got 6 servings out of this.
Well the fact that I actively sought this out should tell you that I really love this soup, so I fully expect to be revisiting it!
