From elsewhere in The Post: Even if half of your household claims they don’t like soup, that doesn’t mean you’re out of luck for serving it. Just ask All We Can Eat blogger Domenica Marchetti. Despite her husband and son’s resistance to the dish, Marchetti was able to find a hearty broth that appealed to the men in her life, her daughter and herself.
“A few years ago I bought a cookbook called ‘The Sultan’s Kitchen,’ by Turkish chef Ozcan Ozan. I’ve made a lot of recipes from it but the one I returned to most often was a thick, fragrant soup with red lentils and bulgur (cracked wheat), flavored with tomato, hot pepper and mint. It was substantial enough to be a main course for my daughter and me, and an accompaniment to grilled sausages for the boys,” Marchetti says.
This dish can be made in about an hour and serves six.
