This morning I had the pleasure of presenting the following Turkish recipe on CBC's Weekend Morning Show with Ismaila Alfa. Just the thing for a hot day. Enjoy!
Cacik. Turkish yoghurt soup
1 English cucumber, peeled, seeded and grated
2-3 cups good yoghurt
1-2 cups cold water
1-2 cloves garlic, finely minced
Pinch sea salt
Dill or mint for garnish
Mix yoghurt, cucumber, garlic, salt together. Add cold water to the consistency of a thick soup. Serve cold with fresh dill or mint. Serve with a chick pea dish such as hummus and flat bread or cold spicy chick peas for a cooling Summer meal.
For other options, try some cumin or smoked paprika on the soup as well.
