Persian-Style Red Lentil and Tomato Soup
50 mins (prep 5, cooking 45)
18 ingredients
4 servings
This tangy soup is low-fat, quick and easy to prepare! It is a copycat-of a-copycat recipe from the soup served at Reza's, a Persian restaurant in Chicago (so called because I have never been to Reza's, but once had someone else's imitation of it!). Sumac powder and dried limes can both be found at Middle Eastern groceries or ethnic stores.
