    CUCUMBER SOUP WITH A CRUNCH
    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
    INGREDIENTS (CLICK TO BUY)

    5 hothouse (seedless) cucumbers, peeled
    1/4 cup minced garlic
    2 cups chicken broth
    8 cups plain nonfat yogurt

    PREPARATION

    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.
