 Ingredients List

  • 2 Onions, chopped
  • 3 Stalks of celery, chopped
  • 1 Sweet red pepper, chopped
  • 6 c Veggie boullion
  • 1 ts Turmeric
  • 1 ts Ground coriander
  • 1/2 ts Cinnamon
  • 1/4 ts Cayenne
  • 1 Potato, chopped
  • 2 Carrots, chopped
  • 1 cn (28-oz.) tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 Zucchini, chopped
  • 1 c Coiled vermicelli or Chinese
  • Noodles, crumbled
  • 1 cn Chickpeas, undrained, or 2
  • c Cooked chickpeas
  • 1/4 c Lemon juice
  • 1/4 c Italian parsley, chopped
  • 2 tb Mint leaves, chopped
  • Freshly ground black pepper


Bring onion, celery, red pepper, and 1/2 c. of the boullion to a boil in a
large pot. Simmer about 10 minutes to soften the veggies. Add the
remaining boullion, spices, potato, carrots, and tomatoes; simmer 20
minutes. Stir in zucchini, noodles, chickpeas, and lemon juice, and cook 5
minutes. Garnish with parsley, mint and pepper before serving. 6-8

NOTE: When I made this, I left out the noodles. I've never had "real"
harira before so I can't vouch for the authenticity.

The next time I make this, I might leave out the tumeric. It turned the
chickpeas and the potatoes an unnatural shade of yellow, IMHO.
