Seven soups every Saturday: yogurt-based soup recipes
By nature, I'm not a yogurt lover, but I'm learning to love yogurt, especially as a base for soup. It's popular in Middle Eastern and Indian cuisines. Mix anything with yogurt -- vegetables, fruit, meatballs -- and add herbs and spices, and you can create endless variations. Chilled yogurt soup refreshes; warm yogurt soup satisfies. If you've never tried yogurt as a soup base, I think you'll be surprised at how creative you can be with it.
