READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Dienia B.

From habeeb.com. Boy do they ever have a lot of Lebanese recipes over there. For Zaar 6 Tour. i didnt think the egg added any thing to this recipe . it was a really red soup that tasted pretty good i used canned beets and just chopped them up .

I thought this was interesting however my husband didn't care for it.
I think perhaps I would puree the beets. It could have been a texture thing.
Unique flavor! Reviewed for NA*ME tag/December.
