Steps to follow to make this recipe: 1
Peel the onion and cut it together with the tomatoes in quarters. Place them in the blender jar and beat for 10-15 seconds until the vegetable is chopped.
Heat the oil in a medium saucepan, add the onion and tomato mixture and sauté for 3-4 minutes until tender.
Add coriander, parsley, tomato puree, tomato concentrate, Swiss chard and lentils, sauté for 4 minutes Stirring occasionally. Add the spices to the pot and cook another minute until they begin to release the aroma.
Add the vegetable broth to the pot and cook the Moroccan soup for Ramadan for 15 minutes (in my case there was not much broth left after cooking, so if you want the soup to be more liquid add more broth).
Add half of the chickpeas, remove the vegetarian harira soup from the heat and let cool. Once cold, pour it into the mixer glass and crush until homogeneous.
Pour the Moroccan vegetarian soup back into a pot and put it on the fire, check the salt and pepper points. When the harira soup starts to boil, add the rest of the chickpeas and stir.
