Ash-e Somagh (Persian herb and sumac soup), from Turmeric and Saffron

Ash-e Somagh, Persian herb and sumac soup, from Turmeric and Saffron (on Soup Chick).

A cookbook passed down from mother to daughter inspired Azita, of the wonderful blog Turmeric and Saffron, to make this recipe for Persian herb and sumac soup her own. The soup base of lentils and rice gets a bit of a tang from dried sumac, an herb with lemony undertones. If you have a garden, get out your nippers; this gluten-free, vegan soup calls for whole bunches of fresh cilantro, parsley, tarragon and chives. Doesn't that sound fantastic?

What a simple but beautiful soup - love all the herbs. Saving this for cooler weather. I'm always looking for lentil soup recipes.
