Farmers Market Recipes: Cool Cucumber Soup

HildeIt's been a very hot summer in Boston (the second hottest July on record, actually), so there have been a lot of nights when you don't feel like cooking. This soup is just what we need right now.


Cool Cucumber Soup
Serves two.

Ingredients

  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint
  • 1/3 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
  • 1 Teaspoon to 1 Tablespoon rice vinegar, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • pinch cayenne pepper
Directions

Peel cucumbers. Blend all ingredients until it reaches a smooth consistency. Taste to see if you want more salt, vinegar, or cayenne pepper. Chill in refrigerator. Enjoy!

  1. Reminds me of the cold soups we enjoyed at the Eastern Market this summer in Washington D.C.
