Moghrabieh is a beautifully hearty Lebanese soup. The dish has two main components: a gorgeous broth highlighting Lebanese 7 spice and caraway seed, and perfectly chewy moghrabieh, which is almost identical to pearl couscous. While the soup typically uses chicken, this Roasted Cauliflower, Chickpea and Tempeh Moghrabieh by Noha Elbadry-Cloud uses roasted tempeh and cauliflower to provide amazing texture and flavor. This is the perfect soup to sip on a cold day, and it’s a great winter dinner to share with loved ones.
