"There's just something very refreshing about cucumbers. This soup is perfect for a hot summer night when you don't want a big meal".


2 tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 medium cucumbers, peeled and diced
1 1/2 cups vegetable or chicken stock
5 tablespoons heavy cream
Salt and pepper to taste
Fresh mint, for garnish

  • Add the oil and onion to a large pan and saute for approximately 10 minutes or until onion has softened.
  • Add the cucumber and cook until cucumber is tender.
  • Transfer the mixture to a blender or food processor and carefully blend until smooth. (Caution! Hot liquids create steam which will blow the top off the blender! Be sure to securely hold blender lid down!)
  • Return the pureed mixture to the pot and add the stock and cream. Over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Cool to room temperature and then refrigerate until well chilled.
  • To serve, ladle soup into bowls and garnish with fresh mint, if desired.
