I’ve been having my mom’s delicious lentil soup for as long as I can remember. All of these years I had absolutely no idea how she made it. I just assumed because of the hearty taste it was an all day process. This traditional middle eastern dish is extremely easy to make, and I’m actually quite ashamed that I’ve gone this long not having the slightest clue how it’s made. Extremely popular during the month of Ramadan, many Muslims will break their fast with lentil soup, or Shorbat Adas. You may have even seen this on the menu of a Greek or Turkish restaurant. There are several variations, however one thing stays the same: there’s nothing better than a pipping hot bowl of adas on a chilly day with a warm blanket and good book.
