Moroccan Harira

Harira is a typical morrocan soup especially made for Ramadan ( the holy month in which muslims fast everyday from dawn to sunset). This special soup is made with tomatoes, chickpeas and lentils… And since I’m a moroccan, I thought about sharing with you this recipe that is close to be a culinay culture for us.
