My saturday was spent dancin' in the kitchen, trying new recipes and having a good time putting ingredients together for this delicious and refreshing Chilled Cucumber Soup. It only takes a few minutes to prepare and will keep you cool during the hot summer days. It's the perfect dish to bring to spontaneous picnics.
- 1 large english cucumber, peeled and sliced
- 1 cup greek yoghurt (if you're vegan, you could substitute the yoghurt with an avocado, to keep the creamy deliciousness)
- 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice
- 1-2 garlic cloves
- 1-2 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp fresh dill
- fresh flat-leaf parsley/ mint (optional)
- salt & pepper
In a blender, mix all the ingredients together. It's better to add the greek yoghurt first as it will be easier to blend the cucumber. You may need to add a little bit of water depending of your blender. Then, add the chopped cucumber, fresh dill, lemon juice, olive oil, parsley/mint and blend until smooth. Let is cool in the fridge before eating it. And voilà!
