Aush (Pashto/Persian: اَښ] sometimes spelled Ash or Āsh, is an Afghan soup dish made with noodles and different vegetables in a tomato-based broth.[1][2][3] It is topped with chaka (yogurt sauce) and dried/crushed mint leaves.

Aush is typically made with a variation of ingredients but may include; flat wheat noodles, tomato, turmeric, vegetables (broccoli, carrots, onion, celery, spinach, garlic, jalapeño), legumes (chickpeas, kidney beans), herbs (dill, mint, coriander, minced cilantro), yogurt and ground lamb, beef or chicken.[1][3][4][5] Unlike the Iranian, Azerbaijani, Caucasian, and Turkish version of soup named Āsh, the Afghani version of the soup is more likely to have tumeric, tomatoes or a tomato broth, and spicy chile pepper.
