Spicy Tomato Yogurt Soup

Spicy Tomato Yogurt Soup // wishfulchef.comI love Greek food and try to incorporate the Mediterranean diet into my cooking (and eating) as much as I can. I love the fresh flavors, the quick and easy recipes and most importantly the strong emphasis on fruits and vegetables. Here is a delicious tomato yogurt soup recipe I adapted from a Greek cookbook I have. The result is a beautiful bright orange-colored soup that tastes fresh and creamy. You can eat it hot or cold, perfect all-year round!

To balance the acidity of the tomatoes, yogurt is mixed in which gives this soup a silky smooth texture. Sun-dried tomatoes and honey are added for a subtle sweet flavor, then a dash of cayenne pepper for a nice kick. Serve this soup with crunchy garlic croutons on top. I’ve also made these amazing crispy baked zucchini rounds last night. They would be a nice addition to serve with this soup; click here for the recipe (and make sure to have some stale bread on hand for the homemade breadcrumbs).
