Dried split peas and ham hocks are cooked with vegetables in chicken stock seasoned with dill weed, bay leaves, soy sauce and red pepper flakes. When cooked through, this soup is pureed and thinned with milk.
Vegetables, garbanzos, raisins and couscous in a lovely Moroccan broth taste delicious inside butter and brown sugar-brushed acorn squash. You can experiment with different vegetables, or add diced chicken. Feel free to be creative with your amounts - I usually freestyle and end up with leftover stuffing mixture, which tastes great on its own the next day. For vegetarians, substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth.
