This was really tasty! I don't share other readers' feelings that it's too garlicky. Smooth, refreshing and very moreish. I'll be making this again.

Nice soup, but as a previous commenter said, it's too garlicky (and I am a big garlic fan usually) and it needs plenty of salt and pepper to bring it to life. I think white pepper would be better, although i used ground black pepper this time. I will definitely use only one clove of garlic next time. I added water to thin it down as suggested but that made it taste too watery. Next time I will add double the quantity of yoghurt instead of any water.

Delicious. I don't like mint so used basil instead

absolutely delicious! quite garlicky though, next time i'll only use one clove. and it needs a fair bit of salt to lift the flavours.
