Chilled Cucumber, Mint & Yoghurt Soup

If you like Tsatziki or Raita, this is the soup for you.

It is a funny old soup.  I based it partly on Indian salt lassis, salted yoghurt drinks which are a bit an acquired taste, and Middle Eastern yoghurt soups.  And it seemed like a fitting end to a partly frozen cucumber I found at the bottom of the fridge.

Serves 1

Half a cucumber
1 stick of celery
1/4 small onion
1/2 a small garlic clove
5 large mint leaves
Large pinch of salt
2 heaped tablespoons Greek Yoghurt
100ml whole milk

Place all the ingredients apart from the milk into a stick blender cup and blitz like a smoothie.  Add the milk until you have a suitable 'soupy' consistency.  Unlike greedy me, chill and allow the flavours to develop for about 30 minutes.
