      My husband (who is Moroccan) and I liked this recipe. I added a couple of beef stock cubes and cooked the lentils in the pressure cooker for 12 minutes before I put in the other beans. Otherwise, I followed the recipe as written. In Morocco they usually don't add white beans with lentils, but they do add garbanzo beans. I also substitued with ras el hanout instead of using garam masala.

      My husband grew up in Casablanca and has very particular tastes when it comes to Moroccan meals. This was my first attempt at Moroccan cooking. I followed the recipe except substitued the Garam Masala for Ras El Hanout (that I made myself) and added lamb while the onions, garlic and ginger were being saute'd. My husband LOVES, LOVES, LOVES this soup! So much so that he now holds me "to a higher standard" when I cook. I highly recommend this fantastic recipe!
