Please note that unless I am baking, I tend to take recipes as a "suggestion of ingredients that can be added together to make something yummy!" I don't always stay faithful to the way things are written, but instead use them as ratio guidelines. This is the recipe as written down by my mother. I'll add in my suggestions at the end.
Cold Yogurt and Cucumber Soup
- 1 boiled egg, chopped
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 2-3 cups of plain yogurt
- 1/2 cup light cream
- 6 ice cubes
- 1/4 cup green onions, chopped
- 2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1 cup cold water
- 1 tbsp parsley, chopped
- 1 tbsp fresh dill, chopped (or 1 tsp dill weed)
Let this soup stand in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 hours. When serving garnish with parsley and dill. Makes 4-5 servings. Make sure you stir it well before serving, to get all the good stuff from the bottom of the bowl!
I made this last week because it is one of my summer favorites. I actually soaked the raisins overnight because I was planning on getting it made Sunday night and that just didn't happen. I also doubled the recipe and more than doubled the eggs, cucumbers and raisins. And, Mom?? I actually added the onions this time!! Are you proud of me?!
What's your favorite summer recipe? Do you make an effort to not use the stove/oven?
