    I made this soup with mung beans instead of the chick peas b/c thats what I had on-hand and it came out great! Loved it! I just modified the amounts: 1/2 c lentils and 1/2 mung beans. The cinnamon and cumin are an amazing combination – thank you for the recipe! My fast is coming along great too…pressing in to the Lord.
