Post Looking for a Moroccan soup

Hi
I have been in Morocco during the Easter holliday. I've tasted there a Moroccan soup. It was delicious: spicy but a little bit sweet.
I think that there was cury or a mixture of spices containing cury. I would like to cook it at home. Does anyone have an idea what that soup could be like? If you have some maroccon soup recipe, I'm interested in it!
Thank you in advance

I prepared soup this week-end with curry, carrot and almond.
It seems to match with what you are looking for...
Do you want the recipe?

What kind of curry? The spice shop I go to (Savory Spice Shop) carries about a dozen different types (I just counted on their website 13 that I could definitely ID as curry blends, and there are several others that I'm pretty sure are curries - Indian, Moroccan and others). See THIS page.

This doesn't say it's Moroccan, but it's really good. Not curry powder, but red curry paste...

African Sweet Potato Soup with Peanut Butter and Black Beans

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 0 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Soups

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp Thai red curry paste
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 medium red onion -- peeled and diced
4 cloves garlic -- minced
1 medium sweet potato -- peeled and diced
1 large yellow bell pepper -- seeded and diced
1 jalapeno -- seeded and diced very finely
1/2 lb dried black beans -- soaked overnight and cooked until tender
1 quart veggie broth
1/2 cup all-natural peanut butter (or sunbutter for those allergic!)
1/2 cup boiling water
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
1 lime
3 tsp brown sugar
salt and black pepper -- to taste

Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot. Add the curry paste and cinnamon. Stir for a minute so that the olive oil gets infused with spice. Add the onion, garlic, sweet potato, bell pepper, and jalapeno. Stir and cook the veggies for 5-7 minutes, until softened.

Add the beans and broth. Melt the peanut butter by mixing it with 1/2 cup boiling water. Add that to the mix. Add the red pepper flakes and cilantro.

Bring the soup to a boil, then cover and simmer. Cook until veggies are tender, about 25 minutes.

Stir in the lime juice and brown sugar. Season with salt and black pepper.

The spice mixture was probably Harissa. It's very hot.

We love what is called Moroccan chick pea stew. It is entirely Vegetarian and is simply fantastic in its richness and texture. We also add a diced sweet potato to this recipe for even more flavor/texture.

Eat it with a dollup of Greek yogurt and pita slices on the side.
