Recipe Yield: Serves 8

2/3 cup dried chickpeas, soaked in water overnight with 2 tablespoons baking soda
2/3 cup dried lima beans, soaked in water overnight with 1 tablespoon baking soda
5 1/2 tablespoons clarified butter
2 large yellow onions, thinly sliced (4 cups)
10 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 1/2 teaspoons ground turmeric
1 rounded cup yellow split peas
8 1/2 cups vegetable stock
About 1 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped
About 2 cups cilantro leaves, chopped
1 cup dill leaves, chopped
Rounded 1 cup thinly sliced green onions, white and green parts
5 cups baby spinach leaves
3 1/2 ounces reshtesh or linguini
2/3 cup sour cream, plus 1 teaspoon per portion to finish
1 1/2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
4 limes, halved
Salt and black pepper

Drain and rinse the chickpeas and lima beans and place them in 2 separate saucepans with plenty of water. Place over medium heat, bring to a simmer, and cook until just tender. This should take anywhere between 20 and 40 minutes. Drain and set aside.

Put the butter, onions, and garlic in a large pan and place over medium heat. Cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until soft and golden brown. Stir in the turmeric, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and some black pepper and remove one-third of this mix from the pan to use later.

Add the chickpeas and lima beans to the pan, then add the split peas and stock. Simmer for about 35 minutes, skimming the froth occasionally, until the peas are tender.

Add the herbs, green onions, and spinach, stir well, and cook for another 15 minutes; add more stock or water if the soup is very thick. Add the noodles and cook for about 10 minutes, until they are just done. Stir in the sour cream and vinegar and serve at once, garnished with 1 teaspoon of sour cream per portion and the reserved cooked onion. Serve lime halves to squeeze over each portion.
