Egyptian Red Lentil Soup

11 ingredients

This soup is considered to be a tradition for breaking the Ramadan fast in Egypt and is a traditional "Middle Eastern peace recipe". I got this from a Middle Eastern living blog and decided to share it since I was looking for red lentil recipes. Red lentils can be found in Indian and Middle Eastern grocery stores. This awesome soup is vegan and quite healthy.
