Vegan Turkmen Soup from Turkmenistan (Diced & Spiced) is a unique recipe to try. This ancient dish is often used as a cold remedy and made with black-eyed peas, fresh pasta and chilli. It’s served with tempered yoghurt and minced garlic cloves.
So where is Turkmenistan? Previously part of the Sovient Union, this country borders other countries including Iran and Afghanistan. It sits on the Caspian Sea and has one of the driest deserts in the world. Repetek Reserve recorded the highest temperature ever in the whole former Soviet Union. You would not want to eat this soup then – perhaps an ice cold soda instead!
