    Um Safia's Note:

    Makhlouta is a delicious filling soup which has been made traditionally in Lebanon for hundreds of years - usually it has 7 main pulse/grain ingredients. This is the pressure cooker method but you can do it the traditional way using a large pot & simmer the soup until the lentils, beans & chick peas are tender. Feel free to add some stock / bouillion cubes to this soup along with any additional spices you might like. I have added chicken to this on occasion too. This is the first version of Makhlouta, I will be posting another version too. Time to make doesn't include overnight soaking of the pulses.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Soak the beans, lentils & chick peas over night in plenty of cold water. Once soaked, rinse them well & pick out any bad bits, grit etc.
    2. 2
      Place the beans, lentils & chick peas in a pressure cooker with the water & salt. Cook on a medium heat for 15 minutes (time from when the cooker reaches it's pressure).
    3. 3
      In a separate pan, cook the rice how you like it - I rinse it then add it to 1 1/2 cups of lightly salted water, cover & turn heat down. Drain & set aside once cooked.
    4. 4
      In a frying pan / skillet, brown the onions in the olive oil. Set aside once cooked.
    5. 5
      When the pulses have finished cooking, allow the cooker to de-pressurize then add the rice, onions, caraway seeds & re-season if desired. Simmer uncovered until the soup is the consistency you like - you can add a little more water or stock if it thickens too much.
    6. 6
      Add the lemon juice & cook for a couple more minutes before serving.

      I've been looking everywhere for this recipe, so glad I found it on here! This is one of my husband and my favorites. I make this with a couple bay leaves soaking with the beans. It's very filling and seasoned just right - serve with a stack of Naan bread and you're good to go!
