    Deantini's Note:

    I am posting it here for safe keeping and will be making before long. It looks absolutely delicious. It is a traditional Ramadan Soup. UPDATE - I have now made the soup and love it; I made it with red lentils which worked fine.

      I like this version. I threw in some carrots for DS and a few other veggies I had to use up. I didn't blend just because we like the broth in this dish. THank You Made for ZWT 7.

      Very good! But I had to add quite a lot of salt (just because I'm so used to salty soups :/
