Is it a bit orangish/red in color? That's Mercimek Corbasi. It's quite easy to make and they even sell the packets of the soup in Turkish grocery stores. I can get the recipe from my mom if you'd like, and if we buy any packets (homemade is obviously better but the packets still taste good) perhaps I can send you a few if you're interested.
