We have this really good lentil soup on the menu this week called Shorbat Adas. Last fall we had extra soup and since my grown children get “sick”of soup (can’t imagine why), we reinvented the left overs into this easy, super delicious meal.

Shorbat Adas Wrap

Great Idea for Stretching Your Soup Dollars with Shorbat Adas

If you end up with a little extra shorbat adas soup, here’s a way you can use it to make a completely different,
but super delicious meal. Here’s what you need to make four wraps:

Your favorite wrap ~ flour tortilla, flatbread, naan

  • 1 to 1-1/2 C Shorbat Adas, warm or cold
  • 1 C diced organic cucumber
  • 1 C diced tomato
  • 1 C diced red bell pepper
  • 1/4 C diced red onion
  • 1/4 C fresh herbs ~ dill, parsley and mint
  • 2 C shredded lettuce
  • 1/2 C Greek yogurt
  • 1 T fresh lemon juice
  • 1 T minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp cracked black pepper
  • hot sauce (optional)
  • cooked basmati rice (optional)


Chop first five ingredients and mix together in a bowl.  Chiffonade lettuce and set aside for assembly.  In a small bowl combine yogurt, lemon, garlic and black pepper.  To assemble, spread a few tablespoons of warm or cold shorbat adas on your wrap, spoon 1/4 of the mixed chopped vegetables on top, add 1/2 cup of lettuce and then about 2 T of the yogurt mixture can be dolloped on top of the lettuce. (if your yogurt is too thick to dollop on, you can spread it on the wrap before spreading on the shorbat adas or thin it out with a little milk so you can drizzle it on)  Roll up like a burrito or a taco and enjoy!  We like a little good hot sauce and basmati on ours as well.

What is Za’atar?

Za’atar is a culinary spice blend commonly used in Middle-eastern cooking to season meats, make into an olive oil based paste for breads and spreads and often used to season rice.  It’s most often blended with sumac, which gives it its citrus tang.  If you’d like to make a batch for your pantry, it’s pretty easy.  Here’s a recipe I found online.  This should last for up to six months.



  • 1 1/2 T sumac
  • 1 T thyme
  • 1 T oregano
  • 1 T dry cumin seeds
  • 1 T marjoram
  • 1/2 T paprika
  • 1 T sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1 tsp Kosher salt


  • Mix all ingredients together.

  • Place mixture in a mortar and gently crush together.

  • Place all ingredients in a jar, cap it and shake!  That’s it.
