Jan has a friend who is getting oral surgery and will have a week where she will not be able to chew. My brother-in-law and his family are also coming to the Bay Area and they all have troubles with their teeth. Soft soups are the order of the day and I decided to make three soups that I have made before: Ezo Gelin, Maafe, and Avgolemono. Half I will give to Jan’s friend as a mitzvah and we will have a soup tasting for the family with the rest.

Ezo galin soup is a Turkish dish that comes with its own mythology. I was attracted to the recipe because of Jan’s dietary restrictions. Her oral surgery is healing, but she cannot eat solid food. Cooked bulgur, lentils, and rice seemed like just the ticket for a dish that was soft, but not blended into baby food.
