In large stock pot saute the diced onion & garlic in oil.
Add tomato sauce, lemon juice & water. Bring to boil then reduce to simmer (covered) while you make the meatballs.
FOR THE MEATBALLS:
In giant bowl combine the hamburger, onion, garlic, salt & baharat. Using a table spoon or small cookie scoop, roll out meatballs firmly until no cracks appear. Put on plate until finished with all of them.
Increase soup to medium. Bring soup to a slow boil.
Meanwhile, peel & chop turnips to a 1/2 inch dice. Set aside.
When soup is boiling, add 2-3 meatballs at a time to the soup with a slotted spoon. When finished with meatballs, add the turnips gradually so they don't splash.
Bring back to a slow boil. Cover. Reduce heat to high simmer. Cook 1 hour or until done.
Serve over Easy Vermicelli & Rice.
