Egyptian Lentil Soup: Must Try Shorba Ads!

The oriental classic Shorba Ads is a vegan lentil soup. In Egypt, the colorful nutrient bomb is also known as a very effective medicinal soup. Even the youngest willingly open their mouths for this delicious “medicine”. And that’s a good thing: both lentils and onions have positive effects on blood sugar levels. In addition, lentils are one of the healthiest sources of protein and keep you full for a long time. However, we don’t eat Egyptian lentil soup for health reasons, but because it simply tastes great. It is also a welcome change to our menu.

But these soups also enrich the home plate:
