Marakesh Harira

Good evening my dears, I want to thank you for being inspiring to me and sharing my blog with those you love! I apologize for my abrupt silence! It has been a busy month, and I have missed you so and have so much to share, I will update you in my next post though and would like to share with you this recipe of my take on Moroccan Harira as my first post of January!
Its rainy and cold, feels like a perfect day to celebrate Moroccan culture this evening with your family! Try out my version of HARIRA!
Harira is a beautiful red color, full of flavor and is spicy, just how I LOVE IT!
It is a blessing to share cultural awareness with your family, this is an opportunity to inspire one another, spark conversation and motivate us to learn more about our own cultures.
