Recipe: Lentil Soup, Lebanese Style

Winter is soup time! Adventures in cooking have brought me to an appreciation for the versatility of legumes. (especially lentils!) This lentil soup, with it’s warming spices, is ideal for a cold night after a long day at work or play.  My favorite part is the moment when all of the spices blend together, dissolve fully, and the soup becomes a light shade of green.

If you like meat, marinate and grill some tender pieces of lamb or chicken. Add them to the soup during the final 15 minutes of cooking.

Enjoy!
