The other day I saw a yummy looking cucumber soup being whipped up on the Today Show. I took to the internet to find a recipe. Little did I know there are a ton of variations. Some are spicy, some are sweet. It really all depends on your preference.
Therefore, I will leave it up to you which one you make (search cucumber soup). No matter what you choose, cucumber soup is a perfect chilled soup for the summer. Try having a bowl before heading out to dinner as it will nicely fill your tummy and prevent you from overindulging. Just make a batch, pour into pitcher and store in fridge. Just keep a few things in mind. Sub Greek yogurt, low-fat sour cream, or cottage cheese for any heavy cream. Try using English cucumbers (I found at Trader Joes) as they have fewer/smaller seeds.
Let me know what variation you try!
Until next time…
look good, feel good, do good
