Tarator -  Bulgarian Cucumber Soup

 

 

Everybody has their favorite food or dish for different time of the year.

 

I love cold soups….. Yes, there is nothing better then a bowl of cold cucumber soup also known as Tarator on a hot summer day…..no matter what anybody says….Cold Cucumber Soup is the total heat buster for me…..

 

I must admit that not many people around me share my love for Cucumber Soup, but comes summer I make a big bowl of Tarator once a week.

 

Tarator is traditional Bulgarian soup.

 

When I was growing up my family used to vacation in Bulgaria at the Black Sea every summer and Tarator soup was one of my favorite dishes at the local restaurant.

 

Since I am very far from the Black Sea I have to make my own Tarator every summer.

 

This is my version of the best cold Cucumber soup ever.

 

This recipe serves 6-8.

 

 

 

 

PRINTABLE RECIPE:
 

Ingredients:
  • 1 Long English Cucumber (chopped)
  • 1 cup Walnuts (lightly roasted & finely chopped)
  • 4 Cloves Garlic (finely chopped)
  • 2 Tbsp Fresh Dill (finely chopped)
  • 3 cups Balkan Style Yogurt
  • 1 cup Skim Milk
  • Salt

STEP 1: On a frying pan on medium heat roast chopped walnuts for 5-8 minutes.Cool.

STEP 2: In a large bowl combine chopped cucumber, walnuts, finely chopped fresh dill, chopped garlic, yogurt and milk. Mix well together and salt to taste.

STEP 3: Cover the bowl and put it in the fridge to chill. Serve well chilled.

STEP 4: Before serving sprinkle with some walnuts and chopped dill.

 

 

 

 

Tip: Many recipes for Tarator puree cucumber and garlic together before mixing it together with the rest of the ingredients. I prefer my Tarator chunky.
