This soup is a far cry from the hearty soups of Anatolia, based as they are on lentils, bulgur and chickpeas and designed to be a meal in their own right. We eat a lot of soup in this house probably like most households in Turkey where soup is a staple. It is even eaten for breakfast in some areas although not in this household I hasten to say.

I like to offer soup as a starter for a dinner party and this one reminds me of my very recent odyssey to Australia as it comes from the fabulous cookbook Northern Beaches Cooks which I mentioned before for a marinated salmon dish. Since my return I have now made this soup no fewer than three times for friends as it has been a big success.
