Harira is the traditional soup of Maghreb, and often the dish that breaks the fast of Ramadan, though it can be found year-round being served out of cauldrons in the boisterous Djema el-Fna night market in Marrakesh.
Rich, delicious, warming and fragrant, it is full of lentils, chickpeas, rice and tender chunks of lamb in a thickened tomato broth, spiked with cinnamon, cumin, saffron and harissa. It is often served with dates or sweet pastries, a delightful combination with the savoury, slightly spicy soup.
