Shorbat Adas(Middle Eastern Lentil Soup)
45 mins (prep 10, cooking 35)
8 ingredients
6 servings
This healthy soup is enjoyed throughout the middle east, and although simple in preparation and ingredients, is a very flavorful soup. Adas is considered a main dish mainly because it is so filling, and is usually eaten with pita bread and lemon on the side. *I use Ziyad brand red lentils, they are very very small and cook up quickly(see posted picture), so if you cannot find them, and use a bigger red lentil you may need to adjust water and ingredients as well as cook time.* You may add veggies such as diced carrots, celery e.t.c, but this is how it is enjoyed traditionally in the Palestinian/Jordanian areas.
