This feel-good Moroccan soup is full of medicinal spices and wonderful aromas, making every bowl feel like a warm hug! This soup will taste like it's been cooking all day, yet only requires a tiny bit of cook time thanks to the instant pot! Perfect for a cooler day, this soup contains warming ingredients (lamb, garlic, ginger and cinnamon) which are beneficial for anyone with adrenal fatigue, anemia, menstrual issues and/or infertility. This soup is also free from the common allergens (gluten, dairy, soy, and wheat). You can also make this soup vegan by substituting the chicken stock with vegetable stock, adding extra veggies and lentils or quinoa, and omitting the lamb and greek yogurt. I hope you enjoy this quick, easy and comforting soup!
1/2 TBSP olive oil
1 lb grass-fed ground lamb
1 red onion, diced
1 cup shredded carrots

Combine all spices (turmeric, coriander, ginger, cinnamon, allspice and sea salt) together in a small bowl and set aside.

Add shredded carrots and garlic, stirring for 1 minute.
Add the can of diced tomatoes, chicken broth, chickpeas and spices. Lock and seal the lid and set the instant pot to "manual" for 7 minutes.
