Djemma El Fna Harira Soup
30 mins (prep 30)
22 ingredients
4 servings
I just came back from Marrakesh and had to recreate the Harira I had in the Djemma El Fna market. I read about 20 recipes and used what I thought was the best of all of them, then used my tastebud memories for the rest. This is an extremely flexible recipe, and should be adjusted to suit your tastes. Don't be daunted, it is exceptionally easy! Harira is the soup that is traditionally used to break the fast each day during Ramadan. Note: the spice mix "ras el hanout" is a special blend of 15 - 35 spices created by each spice merchant to his own tastes. It is available to buy through various websites, or you might search the various ingredients and try making your own (I brought some home).
