 I tried this recipe this weekend. Very yummy and very easy! It's
 from _Fat Free, Flavor Full_.
 "Harira is the traditional lemony soup used to break the Moslem
 fasr of Ramadan." quote from the book
 2 onions, chopped
 3 stalks of celery, chopped
 1 sweet red pepper, chopped
 6 cups veggie boullion
 1 t. tumeric
 1 t. ground coriander
 1/2 t. cinnamon
 1/4 t. cayenne
 1 potato, chopped
 2 carrots, chopped
 1 can (28-oz.) tomatoes, chopped
 1 zucchini, chopped
 1 cup curly vermicelli or Chinese noodles, crumbled
 1 can chickpeas, undrained, or 2 c. cooked chickpeas
 1/4 c. lemon juice
 1/4 c. Italian parsley, chopped
 2 T. 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 servings.
 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,
 This tastes even better after sitting in the refrigerator overnight.
