This soup was very good and very spicy. I was looking for something to make with my cucumbers (other than pickles) and found this recipe. Unlike most of the other cucumber soups this is hot and doesn't require sour cream. I recommend this recipe. Be careful when blending it though so it doesn't explode out of your blender and all over making a mess or burning you.
This soup was a hit! My kitchen smells delicious and I can't wait to try it again. What I did differently: - omitted the crushed red pepper flakes - used chicken broth instead of vegetable - used 4 smallish cucumbers - added 3 small potatoes What I plan to do differently next time: - half the cayenne pepper (at least) - puree half of the soup to a chunky consistency and puree the other half to a creamier consistency I didn't believe the reviewers who said it was too spicy. We love spicy food so the only thing I omitted was the crushed red pepper because we didn't have any on hand. It wasn't spicy enough to stop me from eating two bowls of it -- but I do think that next time I will at least halve the cayenne pepper. If it's still too spicy after that I may cut back on the curry. I think the curry is part of what makes this so tasty though so that's the last thing I'll consider cutting back. My husband didn't like the creamy consistency so I'm going to try leaving half of the soup a little chunkier for him next time. My husband is not a soup lover and we were both a little wary of cucumber soup -- but he really seemed to enjoy this soup so it's definitely going to be a keeper for our family!
Great ideas to spice up cucumber soup. I skipped the red pepper flakes and used fresh tomatillos and two fresh serrano chili peppers instead for the heat. I also included 3 very small russet potatoes and had chix broth not veggie broth. Very tasty.
Who ever thought a cucumber dish could have you running for a glass of milk! VERY spicy could easily halve the spices and still get a good kick from this. My father and I mixed this soup into some leftover white rice and this created an excellent dish.
This soup,hmmm,I don't know what to say,it's eatable. I left out the curry (didn't have any) and thank goodness! I thought I would go insane with heat in my mouth! it's way to hot to really taste the cucumbers. My mother did NOT like it at all,she just poured hers out and I will not serve this to my son. Cucumber soup is meant to be a cool soup not this spicy hot.
