Gwinganna’s Persian Chilled Yogurt Soup Recipe
The cooling qualities of yogurt and cucumber make this cold soup recipe from Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat in Queensland, Australia, an ideal soup for warmer months. Rich in calcium and vitamin B2, which plays a key role in energy metabolism, we love the variety of foods in this recipe and how the savory soup offers a completely new way to enjoy yogurt.
