I am slowly getting over a bad cold, and this is the perfect thing to help! I have been meaning to share this Lebanese soup recipe for a while, as it is so quick to make, and is a perfect starter to any meal. So here it is :)
  1. Place the minced meat into a pot, and cook over medium heat until the meat has changed colour and is cooked
  2. Add the salt, pepper and cinnamon and mix well.
  3. Add the water to the pot and stir
  4. Add in the stock cube, followed by the parsley, then bring up the heat to medium/high, and leave to boil
  5. Add the vermicelli and leave on high heat for 3-4 mins, then turn off the heat and leave for around 3-5 mins before serving

So delicious, yet so easy to make!! Enjoy :)
