If you don’t want to spend the time to prepare the dried beans, you can always used canned beans which takes a lot less time. If that is the case, add the beans near the end of the recipe so that they don’t overcook.

Persians like to add a hint of sourness to this soup. An option is to stir in a bit of plain yoghurt right before serving.
