A refreshing soup to keep you cool during the summer.
This soup is one of my sister's favorites. She just loves him. I'd take it for dinner or lunch, sometimes as a snack when you're not sure if you're really hungry or not.
I assure you that when I say my sister, it is not a code for "me". And I didn't just talk in the third person about myself. Because, to be honest, I'm not the biggest fan of cold soups.
For me, a soup must be warm. Even hot. Like burning my tongue, whining about it, and then continuing to eat hot. Ok, I'm lying, I'm not a complete madman. My point is that a soup should be hot, without hurting you, it is meant to comfort you and warm your heart.
Although I hate cold soups, I must admit that this is quite refreshing.
So refreshing, that the last time my sister did it, I even had a whole bowl, after taking about 3 million photos, of course.

Since I've already posted some recipes for yogurt, cucumber, and dill, you're probably wondering, "Are you trying to show us the millions of ways you can make yogurt, dill, and cucumber?"
The answer is perhaps.
I didn't make that plan, but this is definitely one of the many recipes you can make with yogurt, dill, and cucumbers.
In this way you can spend the summer rested, it will not catch fire and it will not swell 10 sizes.
This cold yogurt soup is not thick, but it is super refreshing, very filling and low in calories, therefore excellent if you are trying to lose some weight.
HEALTH AND BEAUTY BENEFITS
There are tons of health and beauty benefits to this soup.
Although it is low in calories, it is very rich in nutrients. This means that you get more nutrients, even if you don't eat too much. That is the dream.
It's rich in that garlic superhero allicin that fights cancer, bacteria, and viruses. And I read somewhere that garlic is an aphrodisiac. Now I don't know how that would work, but if you're trying to seduce someone, it doesn't hurt to serve them this soup.
This soup also has probiotics, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatory agents (under cover). It is also gluten free and grain free.
COLD YOGURT SOUP WITH CUCUMBERS AND DILL
- 1 cup of probiotic yogurt (3.5 – 4%)
- ½ cup of water
- 1 cucumber (or 2 small cucumbers), diced
- 1 minced garlic clove (optional)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil / pumpkin seed oil
- 1/3 cup dill herb, chopped
- ½ teaspoon of salt (gradually add to taste)
- Top with: ground walnuts or sesame seeds; optionally cumin
- Whisk the yogurt with water in a bowl until smooth.
- In a small bowl, mix cucumbers with pressed garlic (optional), a little salt, dill, olive oil. Then add to the yogurt + water.
- Top with some ground nuts / sesame seeds, cumin if desired, and pumpkin seed oil. Salt to taste.
To avoid the taste of garlic, but add some of its flavor: mince the garlic and let it rest in a little olive oil. After 30 minutes, remove the garlic from the olive oil and add the olive oil to the soup.
