    FloridaNative's Note:

    From Eating Well Magazine (1995), this Turkish soup features a delicious, healthful combination of lentils and whole-grain bulgur. A drizzle of sizzling spiced olive oil gives the soup a final flourish.

      Fantastic! This tasted so good. We had lots of leftovers, so I froze half and thawed & reheated it a few weeks later and it was still just as good. The spicy oil of course had mixed in with the soup by then, but the flavor & texture held up.

      I reduced the servings to 2 and with the spicy sizzle it is a very pleasing dish. It was made with vegetable broth. This was served with a salad and flat bread for a nice warming meal. Made for Diabetic Forum *Soup Is On*
