The ability to make a smaller quantity of meat last between a larger number of people makes this style of food more economically efficient, and is a delicious staple for the poorer populations of Palestine. The most popular soup in the region is Adas and consists of creamy lentils and fried onions, it varies widely from home to home and often incorporates seasonal and local ingredients.
