Assyrian Yogurt Soup (Mesta Tooymenta Ooh Beeh)

This Assyrian Yogurt Soup is one of those dishes that does not look very appetizing, but is super healthy, and tastes way better than it looks! I remember mom making it for my oldest brother, Joseph. It must have been a favorite of his, because it left an impression on me for some reason.

When I feel like I’m coming down with something funky, like I do today, this soup hits the spot. It feels so good on my sore throat. It’s pretty simple to make, and only requires a few cheap ingredients, so give it a try, you have nothing to lose!

  4. Sprinkle with mint before serving. If you are not watching carbs, tear some bite-sized pieces of bread and add to a bowl, then pour the soup over the bread. Oh bread, how I miss you...but summer is almost upon us, so no carbs for this girl!
