Simple Cucumber Soup

Rated as 4.15 out of 5 Stars
7

"The most simple yet one of the best soups I had so far. A simplified version of my mum's cucumber soup. No need for salt, pepper, or seasonings, just a good vegetable broth. I like to have it with a good slice of toasted bread and some good cheese."

  1. Melt butter with the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook and stir onion and garlic in the butter mixture until tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add cucumber and zucchini slices; cook and stir until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour vegetable broth over the mixture; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and let simmer until the vegetables are cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from heat and cool a few minutes.
  2. Pour soup into a blender no more than half full. Cover and hold lid in place with a towel; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Puree in batches until smooth.

My garden is producing lots of cucumbers and squash so I have made this soup a few of times. I also add the dill, cayenne and salt as recommended by previous reviewer and I think it really need...

I used chicken and beef stock rather than vegetable stock. I tripled the recipe myself. It's delicious! I think it needs some sliced jalapenos tossed in after it is cooked. :)

Made it verbatim and was a bit bland for my preference. I took 'Soup Loving Nicole's' suggestions for mods and it was incredibly delicious. The soup is addicting. Thanks for sharing the recipe.....

I added salt, celery salt, cayenne pepper, dill weed, and greek yogurt as some other reviewers suggested and with these added it's a 5 out of 5, delicious! Also, sliced cucumber in finished soup.
