      Made it for a Persian-themed dinner party and it was a BIG hit! It almost had a little too much garlic in it for me, but no one else complained. I could not find edible rose petals anywhere, so I left them out...was still delicious.

      This is gorgeous to look at. The taste is not bad but not a special as the look. I used Sunmaid Thompson raisins, Balkan (thick) yogurt so I didn't drain, Chinese pine nuts in place of the toasted walnuts, dried Damascus rose petals from a local Persian grocer, plus the rest of the ingredients. This was served with Luleh Kebabs- Persian Ground Lamb Kebabs, Cherry Almond Pilaf and Persian Tomato and Cucumber Salad (Salad Shiraz). Made for Visiting Iran(Persia) in June 2012!%u200F

      This is one of my all time favorite soups, and I made it quite often while I was in college. I found this recipe in a Middle Eastern cookbook. Sometimes, I add some hard-boiled eggs, chopped to the top, but overall, it is healthy and delicious. The fresh herbs really make the difference. Thank you for posting this recipe.
