Pomegranate Molasses is definatly one of those "specialty items" but if you happen to have it lying around, here is a great way to make use of it (though its not an essential ingredient). This soup has a Middle Eastern flair about it and the heat can be adjusted from mild to spicy to fit any person's preference. Two great things about this soup (in addition to the taste) it's cheap *and* you probably have all the ingredients on hand in your pantry!!
