    madchen-girl's Note:

    This recipe, which was adapted from Linda Fraser's collection of vegetarian recipes, is easy to make and freezes well. During the winter I eat it almost once a week.

      This is a very traditional arabic soup. My sister in law uses this same recipe. I think it's an absolute treat. It's a very thick & hearty soup that's good as a light meal or as a starter. It's fast, easy & very tasty!!
