Bulgarian Recipe – Tarator Soup

Borovets Villa Vacation Rental

This Bulgarian recipe is intended to serve four persons

Bulgarian Cooking Recipe - Tarator Soup Recipe

1 large cucumber, peeled, diced, salted and drained
7.2 dl yoghurt
7.2 dl iced water or mineral water
30 ml olive oil
85 gr walnuts, crushed
3 large cloves garlic, crushed with salt

Bulgaria is the home of the yoghourt culture bacillus bulgaricus, made with lamb glands. It has acquired legendary status as a means of longevity. Home-made yoghurt would suit this recipe, though if it is already thin, dilute it with less water than given above.

Combine all the ingredients in a blender and serve chilled
