Addas bi Hamod

One of my absolute favorite soups and the ultimate taste of winter and is sure to please on any cold evening.

“Adas bil Hamod”  is not only extra ordinary delicious, but a healthy veggie and a protein packed soup. It is an excellent source of vitamins A, K and C and packed with fibers and magnesium.
