Harira is a hearty Moroccan soup often served during the breaking of the fast in the month of Ramadan or on festive occasions. It is a traditional and appreciated dish in Moroccan cuisine. Harira consists of a base of tomatoes, lentils, chickpeas, onions and spices such as turmeric, cumin and cinnamon. Depending on the region and personal taste, other ingredients can be added, such as meat, for example lamb or beef, or pasta and herbs. The soup is slow cooked to bring the flavors together and create a rich texture. Harira is known for its satiating and beneficial effects, as it contains a combination of proteins, fiber and spices. It is often served with dates or figs to break the fast and is a symbol of community and hospitality in Morocco.
