Traditional, healthy Greek soup, made of lentils, garlic, onion, fresh tomatoes and bay leaves. It's really worth  to taste it.

This soup is another dish, common to all Greek homes. Growing up, this soup was on the table almost every week in Mr K's house, especially during Lent. When I first heard it pronounced “fah-KESS” I had to do a double take, as I thought Mr K was swearing! Little did I know, he was just taking about lentils. Although, I have to admit – while I've been working hard to learn more of the Greek language, this word still makes me giggle.  I absolutely loved this soup when Mrs K first made it for me to try. Credits: Greek Lentil Soup, Fakes Soupa (φακές σούπα)
