Refreshing Cucumber Soup

Monday, October 9, 2017


refreshing food

Last week I was preparing warming carrot-ginger soup. Now I continue making colorful food, this time it is refreshing cucumber soup. Quick & easy lunch or starter.

Even though this soup is cold it is also warming as I spiced the mild soup up with some chili flakes.

Refreshing cucumber soup

3pc cucumber (those small ones, 400g)
1 green apple
1 cup mint leaves
2-3 cups natural yoghurt
1 tbsp honey
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 tsp chili flakes

1. Peel & slice cucumbers and apple.
2. Put all the ingredients into blender for a few seconds until the texture is smooth.
3. Add more salt or chili if needed
4. Eat it straight away or put it in fridge and serve it for lunch or as a starter for dinner.

(FI) Viime viikolla valmistin syksyistä porkkana-inkiväärisoppaa. Tällä viikolla jatkan värikkäiden keittojen tekoa ja vuorossa on virkistävä kurkkukeitto. Helppo ja nopea lounasruoka, joka sopii mainiosti myös alkuruoaksi.

Keitto tarjoillaan kylmänä, mutta on siitä huolimatta lämmittävä, sillä
 lisäsin mietoon soppaan vähän chililastuja.

Virkistävä kurkkukeitto

3 avomaan kurkkua (400g)
1 vihreä omena
1dl mintunlehtiä
2-3dl maustamatonta jogurttia
1 rkl hunajaa
1/2 tl suolaa
1/3 chililastuja

1. Kuori ja paloittele kurkut ja omena.
2. Laita kaikki ainekset tehosekoittimeen ja soseuta sileäksi keitoksi.
3. Lisää suolaa tai chiliä mikäli tarpeen.
4. Syö heti tai nosta keitto jääkaappiin ja tarjoile lounaaksi tai alkuruokana.

    1. In the mateer of fact I'm not a huge fan of cucumber either but this soup is so smooth and has that special flavour from chili that I can still recommend it to you and your family.

  7. I am a big fan of soup - pumpkin, ginger, tomato - named it I so love them. But to be honest, I haven't tried cucumber soup yet, though I always prefer cucumber juice for drinks. I am gonna try your recipe, thanks for sharing.

    1. If you like cucumber juice you must like this soup as well. Just adjust the amount of chili flakes not to make it too spicy.

    1. Yes, you should try this. And remember to adjust the amount of chili flakes if you want to taste the cucumber more.

  9. That looks absolutely scrumptious, I must admit! I love that little layer of froth which makes it look extra appetizing. Nice little post here!
