Turkish Red Lentil Soup (Ezo Gelin Corbasi)
The origin of this rich Turkish soup is attributed to an astonishingly beautiful girl born in 1909 in the village of Dokuzyol, located on ancient caravan routes in the Barak plain. Ezo had big eyes and black hair and was adored by the camel riders who stopped by her house for water. Her story ends badly though, her first marriage to a villager was unhappy and she was permitted to forsake him on the grounds of maltreatment. Her second marriage to her to Syria and a mother in law who could not be pleased … and for whom, it is said, she helplessly created this soup. Ezo died of tuberculosis in Syria in 1952, but in the interim had become a legend in her native land in both folklore and film. Her name lives on this very popular stick-to-the-ribs soup, which is traditionally fed to new brides, right before their wedding to sustain.
