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.
