  • 2 cucumbers peeled and diced
  • 500 grams Bulgarian yogurt
  • 1 clove garlic chopped
  • 1 large handful mint leaves or a small bunch of dill
  • 50 grams walnuts toasted
  • lemon juice
  • water optional
  • ice cubes optional


  • In a blender combine the diced cucumber, the yogurt, garlic, half of the mint (or dill) and half of the walnuts.
  • Blend until smooth and season with salt, pepper and lemon juice. If you’d like a thinner soup, add water, a little at a time until it’s the consistency you want.
  • Transfer to a bowl and garnish with remaining walnuts and mint leaves or dill. Cover and store in refrigerator for 30 minutes to chill.
