Here are a few simple suggestions on how to make it:
CUCUMBERS – We used English cucumber for the recipe because they require little prep beyond giving them a quick wash, lopping off the ends and chopping them up. Feel free to experiment with different varieties of this refreshing vegetable, just remember to scoop out the seeds, if necessary, before chopping them.
YOGHURT – Yoghurt works perfectly in this application and adds a silky smoothness to it. Vegans can swap it out for unsweetened almond milk or another nut milk of choice. Please drop the results of your experimentations in the comment section of this post – we’re interested to know what alternatives work best.
SHALLOTS, GARLIC & LEMON – These three ingredients do wonders to both balance and boost the flavour profile of the soup. The shallots add a subtle onion flavour and play well off the two cloves of garlic that we toss in for good measure. The freshly squeezed lemon juice finishes it off with a bright, tangy note.
PARSLEY AND DILL – Making a healthy chilled soup such as this offers the perfect occasion to deliver fresh-flavour notes, and this winning combination of herbs is stellar. Don’t forget to chop up some fresh chives too, to be used as a garnish.
THE BLEND – This recipe serves eight so there’s quite a bit to blend. Our Vitamix blender easily handled the task, but feel free to blend things up in stages, transferring the blended portions into a large bowl to stir before chilling and serving.
