    Cookie Jarvis's Note:

    This is a very typical Arabic soup made with very few ingredients. The taste is amazing and your stomach will thank you if you eat it on a warm, rainy day. Make it a meal by adding torn up pieces of pita bread to your bowl, or fry pieces of pita bread in oil for an arabic style crouton. Some like a squeeze of lemon or a pinch of cumin for extra flavor. A garnish of green onion is nice as well. Great soup for pressure cooker.

      This recipe is very much like one my habibi (boyfriend) made for me. Only he used brown lentils because that's the only kind the store had. And he used real butter. It was sooo good! I couldn't believe something so simple could taste so good!
