Super tasty for a California winter - I've made it three times since you posted it. As the previous comment mentioned, the soup has its way of disappearing.

Dear Binur

Elinize saglik. I usually make mercimek corbasi (although in a different version of your recipe), but went out on a lim today and made a half portion of mercimek corbasi and the potato soup. My husband absolutely loved the potato soup... so maybe he found a new favorite :-)

This is really a delicious and nutritious soup. I also added some peas and corn. Great on winter nights.
