SO HOW'D IT GO?

A little something to add  ^-^ the flavor really develops if you let it sit in the fridge over night.

I totally loved it today!

This soup was pretty good although it did need quite a bit of salt. It was very filling and I absolutely loved the chickpeas ;)

This was pretty good - a little bland, but I also didn't have any lemon juice, so that may have played a big part....
I added 2 cans of chickpeas, and no fresh tomatoes.  I think I would have liked it better if the spice combination were different.  I ended up drenching it in sriracha......but very healthy since I didn't use the oil - I saute in veggie broth.

This is delicious! I added a little water and put the canned tomatoes in with their juice, because there didn't seem to be much liquid otherwise. Did I miss something? Anyway, this was great. Served with quinoa. Eaten with spork. :)

yum! I love how tangy it is with the lemon and paprika. actually, I only had one lemon, so I put in the juice and the zest. also used collards for spinach. I didn't have a red pepper, I wish I had - next time!

Yum!  This was really tasty!  I used cut up celery instead of spinach, and 'Italian' tomatoes and left out the spices, and it was great!  Reheats very well too.

;D I knew it was going to be good, and it was far better than I had imagined. I started the recipe and realized that I had no fresh tomatoes, so I omitted them, and it was DELICIOUS I forgot to make rice and found out this recipe is awesome with taco chips. :D :D :D
