Cold Armenian Yogurt-Barley Soup by Sy

Recipe Description

This delicious yogurt soup just "Hits The Spot" on a hot summers day! You can find variations of this recipe from Eastern Europe to the Middle East. I especially loved the yogurts in Turkey, Iran and Greece. If possible, try making your own home made yogurt. I use a Salton yogurt Maker and the yogurt comes out rich and creamy. However, a good substitute is the greek yogurts found in some of the bigger supermarkets.


  • 4 cups rich creamy high fat content yogurt
  • 2 cups already made Barley (cold)
  • water (cold)
  • salt, pinch of
  • dried mint (not the fresh mint leaves)


* In individual bowls add 1 cup of yogurt, some Barley, a pinch of salt and water.

* Mix into a nice medium thick consistancy (like the thickness of buttermilk) Sprinkle some dried mint leaves on top.

* Enjoy.
