Moroccan Harira..yum!

Ok so there are a couple of variations on this….but I’ll share what I think is the easiest version. Straight from the Peace Corps Cookbook.

Ingredients: 1 t pepper, 200grams of chickpeas, 2 liters of water, 1 t ground ginger, 1T tomato paste, 5 tomatoes (peeled andn grated), 3T flour, 2 onions (finely chopped), 1/2 t salt, 2 beef bouillion cubes, 100 grams of lentils, 1 bunch of cilantro chopped, 1 beaten egg.

In a large saucepan cook the following over med heat for 30min: onions, pepper, salt, chickpeas, water, bouillon, ginger, and lentils (or use a pressure cooker for faster cooking). One by one add tomato paste, cilantro, & tomoatoes. In a small bowl mix flour and 1/2 C of the soup until creamy. Pour into saucepan and stir quickly. When flour mixture is absorbed, pour in eggs and stir. Serve with lemon juice drizzled on top.

Enjoy! Harira, a Ramadan staple.
