My taste buds are tap-dancing; the Glaswegian is sneaking spoonfuls from the pot after two very healthy bowls and the dog is whining! This 5 star business doesn’t go past 5 though! I took the weather ingredient of your recipe as a sign of what was in store for dinner (the temperature tonight is ridiculous by Toronto standards, –30 with the wind-chill). I knew I was going to make lentil soup and had my heart set on an Armenian or Lebanese recipe. Finding myself short of ingredients, my eyes rested on your recipe and I am in heaven! I made a couple of minor changes…I had homemade vegetable stock on hand but less than three cups to which I added cold water to make up 8 cups. I’ve been having an oregano crisis lately (see Italian Chicken Recipe #26469 by Mysterygirl for details) so I decided to substitute fresh thyme instead. I’ll have you know that I went slightly off my diet for this recipe. Good grief…I mixed a protein with a carb (and I’m smiling)!!!
