Abdo Khiar (Chilled Yogurt Soup) with Baked Bread
An essential Iranian dish people consume to cool off after a long hot day. Chef Mina loves to make this soup during the summertime when she is craving something light and refreshing. She mixes greek yogurt with seasonal vegetables like cucumber and chili tomatoes. Then, she balances the tangy and bitter flavors with the sweetness of raisins. This dish has many herbal fragrances with the tiny sprinkles of mint, basil, and rose powder distributed carefully within the soup. It is a great dish to eat to escape the brutal Washington, D.C. heat.
