Lamb Shawarma Chickpea Soup




2 tsp EACH cumin powder, coriander, paprika

1 tsp cardamom powder (can exclude on the off chance that you don’t have)

¼ tsp cinnamon powder

½ tsp cayenne pepper (adjust to taste)

1/2 tsp black pepper

1 tsp salt


2 tbsp olive oil

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 onion, finely hacked

500 g/1 lb lamb mince (ground sheep, or meat) (Note 1)

2 tbsp tomato glue

2 carrots, stripped and hacked (about size of chickpeas)

600 g/21 oz canned chickpeas, depleted and washed (1.5 standard jars, Note 2)

400 g/14 oz can squashed tomato

3 cups/750 ml chicken soup/stock

1 bunch spinach, generally hacked (around 4 pressed cups) (shrinks a ton)

Trimmings (Energetically Suggested):

Plain yogurt (or sharp cream)

Hacked crisp coriander/cilantro


Warmth oil in a huge pot over high warmth. Include garlic and onion, cook for 1 moment until beginning to turn translucent.

Include sheep and cook, separating it as you go. At the point when it has, for the most part, abandoned pink to light dark-colored, include flavors.

Cook for 1 moment, at that point, include tomato glue and cook for an additional 1 moment. (It smells astounding!)

Include carrots, chickpeas, tomato, and soup. Mix and bring to stew.

Spread with cover, lower heat so it is percolating vivaciously however not insane quickly. Cook for 10 minutes until carrot is delicate however not very delicate – I like it to have a touch of nibble still, on the off chance that you need excessively delicate, continue cooking.

Mix through spinach. When withered, modify salt, pepper, and hotness (cayenne) to taste, and water in the event that you need increasingly fluid.

Scoop into bowls, include a spot of yogurt and a liberal sprinkling of coriander. Appreciate!
