A model of Moroccan food simplicity. Another soup that costs pennies, takes minutes, and tastes like a million bucks. Vegetarian without even trying, and so much richer than the sum of its plebeian parts. This is practically my granddaughter Tsofia’s first solid food. And guess who fed her: Who better...
