My Aunt was coming up for lunch today and I wanted to make something light and refreshing to go with our Garden Veggie Sun Dried Tomato Burgers from Trader Joe's. Way back in the day, I can remember my mom whipping up a tangy cucumber soup. The taste of tart yogurt and dill still brings me back... This recipe works great for luncheons with you and your little ones, how cute would it be to serve in green-see-thru-plastic-cups, with a sprig of dill resting gently on top?! (Today mine was served up in my colorful orange, teal, and powder blue Fiesta Ware).
I went online and found a good framework for the recipe and then switched some parts around, here is my version:
1 1/2 cups plain low-fat yogurt 2 medium cucumbers, chopped (one peeled, one with peel) 3-5 sprigs of fresh mint 3-5 sprigs of fresh dill 1 teaspoon light agave nectar
Put all ingredients in blender, depending on your blender you may want to add just one cucumber at a time... Blend, chill in fridge, overnight works great and gets the dill and mint taste to really pop.
(I'm thinking oh-how-good-would-this-be made with Greek yogurt?! Yummm)
Ask any pregnant woman and she will tell you that now she’s expecting what once smelled delicious - like roasting coffee beans for example, has suddenly become the one smell that induces an overwhelming feeling of nausea. For some women the pregnant nose goes into smell overdrive…
