Lentil Yogurt Soup Recipe

Simple, delicious and original lentil yogurt soup from Armenian cuisine, called Qalagosh. The name of the dish presumably comes from Armenian “gayla chash”, which means “meal for a wolf “, as the dish is quite filling . I’d call this a great breakfast or brunch, that will keep you going for many hours.

You don’t need a complex list of ingredients to make this incredibly delightful meal and most importantly it’s super simple to make. You’ll figure it out as you watch the tutorial on YouTube.
