About Green Lentil Soup With Noodles:

This green lentil soup is unique to Anatolia since centuries. So, it’s one of the oldest and very traditional soups of Turkey. For me, lentils can be considered as essentials of Turkish table and even I cook this soup once or twice in a month. Right along with being very light, it’s also helpful to our immune system because of the vitamins and minerals that green lentils have. My husband, my family and my friends are aware of it and for that reason like this soup so much. When you taste, I’m sure you’ll like it too. But be careful, it may be hot :)
