Break your fast with harira soup

In my latest podcast episode, "Pleasures of Fasting," I talk through a recipe for a soup that is a staple in Morocco during the fasting month of Ramadan. Here is the recipe for this vegan harira.


In a big stock pot add:

1 cup chopped onion

1 cup chopped parsley

1 cup chopped cilantro

2 tbsp chopped celery leaf – the stuff hidden behind the stalks

1 teaspoon turmeric

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Pinch of black pepper

Pinch of salt

Sauté above in 1 tbsp olive oil until golden

Add 1/2 cup dried lentils

Add 1.5 qts vegetable stock

Add a can of chickpeas

Add 32oz crushed tomato (big+little can)

Cook until lentils are tender

Stir 1.5 tbsp flour into warm water then add to soup


Salt to taste

Serve with lemon wedges
