You don't need a leg of lamb or pieces of chicken to pull out the flavours of Morocco in a dish. This vegan friendly soup is filled with delicious and heart-healthy chunks of veggies and beans. You can use any types you want, but my soup's stars were cauliflower and lima beans, which are full of protein, fiber and vitamins!

This looks really yummy. I love lima beans too, so this will be a new way to prepare them with all the other wonderful veggies.

I'll try this, soon, and I have some dried lima beans to cook, so I'll sub those for canned. Looks yummy!

You are so welcome. You know, I never liked lima beans until a couple years ago. I think I just swore them off as a kid. So many years wasted! ;)
