Morrocan Harira

Typically, Harira is made with lamb, but I decided to use rotisserie chicken instead and lighten it up.


28 oz can San Marzano tomatoes
1 small rotisserie chicken in pieces
1/2 teaspoon each of tumeric and cinnamon
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
1 onion, diced
1/4 cup red lentils
1 cup garbanzo beans
1/4 cup orzo pasta
2 shallots, peeled
1/2 cup shredded zucchini
Salt and fresh cracked pepper
3 cups dark chicken stock, or light stock


1. Melt butter in a soup pot, and add in the onions; cook 5 minutes on medium
2. Add in the tomatoes, tumeric, cinnamon, and fresh herbs
3. Rinse lentils and add in to soup with garbanzos, orzo, and stock.
4. Season with salt and cracked pepper, bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer & cover.
5. Cook for 1 1/2 hours, add in chicken, shallots, and zucchini;cook for another 30 minutes, stirring every so often.
