Persian Lentil Soup

Courtesy of my good friend Babak

-One measure each of:

  • Lentils
  • Mung beans
  • Barley
  • -Half measure of cracked wheat.
  • -One med onion
  • -Salt/pepper, turmeric
  • -Chicken or beef broth

Wash beans to get the dust off them. better if you soak the beans, they cook faster.

Dice onion and with beans put in a pot, some water and bring to boil. Add water as needed. Or add broth for flavor.

When the beans are cooked (ish) turn it down to simmer, stir in a bit, i.e. knife tips worth, of turmeric. Salt and pepper to taste.
