Moroccan Inspired Vegetable Soup

Introduction

A hearty, exotically-spiced soup with saffron, curry, ginger and even sweet orange notes. Vegan, but with nutty chickpeas and a ton of vegetables and grains you'll never miss the meat. This also freezes well. A hearty, exotically-spiced soup with saffron, curry, ginger and even sweet orange notes.
