The idea for this soup came from a (translated) Lebanese cookbook I found in a second-hand bookshop. It is fairly basic but would make a good start for something more elaborate.

Chef's notes

Nowadays, 2 tablespoons of salt seems to be a little excessive. I would suggest adding just a little and adjusting any seasoning at the end. You can add more but you can't take it away.
