    MechanicalJen's Note:

    A dear friend of mine gave me this recipe. Her mother made this for their family while she was growing up. Amazing soup with a surprisingly meaty texture and beautiful color. Wow! Even cooler? The variations she suggested. I've tried the Baghdadi variation - and I can't imagine the other ones being anything less than marvelous. This is THE lentil soup recipe I use now.

      This was a very good soup! I had planned to give only 4 stars becauseit was too bland for my taste but treated it with some Indian spices and all was well. So why did I still give 5 stars?.....because the recipe was very good as it stands and the need for the spices is a personal one. Since I rarely use salt anymore, extra spices are needed to bring up my taste buds. I added curry powder, coriander, minced fresh garlic, and mustard seeds. I did caramelize a large white onion for 3 hours until almost melted, stirred in the extra spices along with 1/2 tsp lemon zest. I also used my own vegetable stock. Really great supper....thanks to you, Jen!
