    from "Celebrate!" by Sheila Lukins

    Cooling and aromatic, this soup is in part inspired by raita, the yogurt and cucumber condiment that is so popular on Indian menus for its ability to soothe a palate all fired up by curry. On this menu it is simply a sublime and smooth springtime starter.

    Serves 8

    5 hothouse (seedless) cucumbers, peeled
    1/4 cup minced garlic
    2 cups chicken broth
    8 cups plain nonfat yogurt
    2 cups coarsely chopped fresh mint
    2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    8 large red radishes, cut into 1/4-inch dice, for garnish

    1. Cut 4 of the cucumbers into 1-inch pieces and place them in a food processor or blender. Add the garlic, broth, 6 cups of the yogurt, 1 1/2 cups of the mint, and the lemon juice. Process until smooth. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl. (If using a blender, prepare the puree in batches.)
    2. Whisk in the remaining 2 cups yogurt and 1/2 cup mint. Season with salt and pepper. Chill, covered, for 2 to 3 hours.
