Chef Olia Hercules uses rice and chickpeas to add body to this naturally light chilled yogurt soup, teeming with chopped herbs like spinach, sorrel, cilantro, mint, and dill. You can certainly serve it hot, if you prefer, which is half the fun of making soups; you can make or serve them in any way that you like, says Hercules. "It's all about using what's fresh and getting the most flavor out of it."
