“Amanda grew up in many different countries and one of those was Syria. She loved her time there and has many fond memories of her childhood in Syria. This is an authentic lentil soup recipe that her mother obtained while living there. It is now one of my favorite soups. It also goes great with our homemade pita bread recipe and hummus recipe. Put them all together and you have a fabulous meal that is pretty easy to make. We hope you enjoy.
