I think it's excellent. I made many quarts with all of the cucumbers from the garden. I froze a lot of it and it thawed nicely. We had it often throughout the winter. I just had to whisk it a litle to mix the sour cream back in. A nice refreshingly different soup.
This is a very nice recipe--great for a hot summer night's dinner party. I opted for the use of dill instead of tarragon; it seemed to go better with cucumbers. Regarding the use of farina: although the recipe says to add the farina right after the broth I was afraid the farina would get lumpy being poured into liquid that was not hot. I waited for the broth to boil and then I added the farina whisking rapidly to make sure no lumps formed.
Excellent! Definitely love it with the dill. I skipped the butter part and just used fat free cooking spray which brought my weight watchers numbers down to 1 point using fat free sour cream-delicious! I also added a few dashes of Tobasco.

This recipe is different from the one that I make but it was good. I like to try different variations of cucumber soup. With this soup I ommited the chicken broth and replaced it with vegetable broth the vinegar I used is tarragon vinegar and I added dill weed since I like a lot of dill with my cukes I added a lot. I also used half and half with this recipe instead of sour cream it seems to make it rich flavor. Since I like a heartier soup I added more farina(cream of wheat) to the soup then I pureed it. Mix everything up and let it sit overnite and before serving I puree it again and serve. This way it allows the flavors to blend. I think the next time that I make this soup I will try adding a little white wine. This soup is one of my staples during the summer. I pair this up with a cold vegetarian sandwhich and a tall glass of of Ice tea.
This is a great recipe for all those garden cucumbers you can never seem to keep up with. I made a big batch (minus the sour cream) and put in freezer containers (adding sour cream later). We ate soup throughout the winter! Great in bread bowls with a large salad or simple chicken or ham dinners. My husband loves this recipe! I will try it with dill this year.
I loved this recipe. It was quick and easy. I used 1/2 cup potato soup instead of farina and pureed the soup for about 2 minutes. The final texture was almost like a broth which made it light and great for a summer dinner.
This was a very good light soup. I used dill like someone else suggested next time I will try the tarragon just to see what it is like. I really liked it. By the way for anyone weight watchering it is only 3 points!
This is a very different recipe. I liked it but my mom did not. I did not seed the cucumbers. I just peeled and diced. I didn't have farina so I added half of a potato. It tasted fine. Great for a change.
I really liked this. I had however never heard of cucumber soup before; I had a lot of dill so that is what I used instead of parsley and it was a nice compliment. I made it the night before when the weather was ok for dinner when it was going to be scorching hot and I'm glad I did! Served with recipes for stuffed pattypan and marinated mushrooms from this site.
I thought I'd love this because I LOVE cucumber soups. But I must have done something wrong and I hope someone can tell me what my problem was. I meant to make the soup as written but substitute the dill which I love for the tarragon which I don't care for. I accidently bought Cream of Rice instead of Cream of Wheat but I thought it would be OK. The soup was so thin it was weird to eat. (Might have been better if I had added chunks of cucumber). I tried adding more sour cream - it didn't help much. I don't know much about Farina and the Internet wasn't a great deal of help. My heart tells me this would be a keeper for a cumcumber soup nut like I am.
