This is an excellent soup, and while I'm no authority on Lebanese cooking it tasted fairly authentic to me. My hubby also loved it. I pretty much made it as-is except I only put in 1/2 the salt, sauteed half the garlic with the onions and put in the other half with the collards, and I steamed the collard greens instead of sauteing them in oil. I didn't miss the salt, and I prefer to use less if I can get away with it. I also used my immersion blender to SLIGHTLY blend the lentils before adding the collard greens and spices. This gave the soup a creamier texture, but I only did it for a few seconds as I didn't want to overdo it! I will be making this soup again.
