This hearty soup is a traditional dish that Moroccans use, to break the fast every night of Ramadan. It's a hearty soup with lamb, lentils, chick peas and pasta, which is spiced with cinnamon, turmeric and ginger.
beautiful soup, very authentic. copied it exactly except: (1) i blended onion/parsley/coriander/celery together and (2) added beef stock cube with water. i did add more water at end as soup was very thick and not too sure if lemon was needed at the end cos it took away from spices! - 18 Aug 2010
Really enjoyed, but agree with first review re it was very very thick. We enjoyed it as a meal may try more liquid next time. - 12 Mar 2016
Lemon and Eggs in Harira? I don't think so. I'm moroccan and cooking this soup for decades. Wheres the Salt and Pepper, where is the vegetable stock, this makes such a difference. I cook this for hours, just simmering before any tomatoes go in. A big old cinnamon stick is needed and carraway seeds... too many steps missing here. - 17 May 2018
