Moroccan Chickpea Soup

I found this one on and it's become my new absolute favorite! Thus, I'm sharing with the world.

3-4 servings
25 minutes 10 mins prep
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 medium onions, finely chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 tablespoons ground cumin
1-2 teaspoon harissa, to taste <-- it's a hot spicy condiment, you can substitute red chili flakes
600 ml hot vegetable stock
1 (400 g) can chopped tomatoes
1 (400 g) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
200 g broad beans, shelled (frozen are okay) <-- Fava beans
1/2 lemons, juice and zest of
4 tablespoons fresh coriander or parsley, chopped

In a large saucepan, heat the oil and then fry the onion and celery until softened, about 10 minutes.
Add in the cumin and and fry for another 30 seconds.
Turn up the heat and add the stock, tomatoes, chickpeas and harissa.
Season with salt and pepper and simmer for 8 minutes.
Throw in the broad beans and lemon juice and cook for a further 2 minutes or until the broad beans are tender.
Season again and then ladle into bowls.
Top with a bit of lemon zest and chopped coriander or parsley.
Serve with your favourite bread.

It's better on the second day.
