Hi everyone! Today, I’ve got a great cucumber soup recipe for you that’s perfect for summer. Okay, so it’s not vegan. But this doesn’t mean that dairy can’t be part of a healthy diet and lifestyle! I personally choose to abstain from dairy because I think it’s too acidic for my body and have a mild dairy intolerance. Many of you, however, do great with dairy and can consume it regularly. Fermented dairy products like yogurt and kefir are especially great, as they provide loads of healthy probiotics! Plain yogurt also has a very cooling effect on the body, which pairs perfectly with this cucumber soup recipe.
Today’s recipe is provided by my good friend and fellow blogger Shirin Shahin of The Saffron Life. Shirin has become an active participant in WTAF and has some great insight about Persian cuisine. Note how this is a yogurt soup with a much thinner consistency compared to the maast o’ khiyar I made a while ago. I hope everyone enjoys Shirin’s post!
