Recipe: Atlas Mountain Soup

I just had to share this with you all This soup, which is more like a stew, is sustaining enough to make a complete meal if accompanied by some good, crusty bread. The meat, combined with spices and with a tang of lemon and apricots, has the flavor of North Africa.

Atlas Mountain Soup Ingredients

  • cup chopped dried apricots

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin

  • 2 teaspoons paprika

  • 1 pound ground lamb

  • 4 stalks celery, cut into 1/2 inch pieces

  • 1 large green bell pepper, sliced

  • 1 pound tomatoes, coarsely chopped

  • 1 lemon

  • 1? cups water

  • 1 tablespoon white sugar

  • salt and black pepper to taste

How to Make Atlas Mountain Soup

  1. Soak the apricots in water for 2 hours or more until soft; drain.

  2. Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add the garlic, cinnamon, cumin, and paprika; cook and stir for 1 minute. Raise the heat to medium-high, crumble in the ground lamb, stirring and breaking it up with a wooden spoon for a few minutes until browned. Stir in the drained apricots, celery, green pepper, and tomato.

Atlas Mountain Soup Reviews

  • I followed this recipe quite closely, and it was a gently-spiced, rustic, lemony soup. I used sweet paprika, and I think Ill try hot paprika next time.

  • Interesting combination of flavours and the dried apricots add a different texture. I used a can of tomatoes since the fresh ones available right now have no flavour.

  • Hi, I submitted this recipe all those years ago. Ive since made some small changes to it that have improved the flavour (in my opinion).Add 1/3 tsp (or to taste) of sumac, it really brings out the citrus flavour.And garnish with a sprinkling of Pul Bieber.
