Cool as a Cucumber Soup
Posted By Nava On July 8, 2011 @ 8:29 pm In Cold Summer Soups | 4 Comments
With temperatures at tropical levels all over the country, this week’s recipe is one of my favorite easy, no-cook soup featuring cucumbers with lots of fresh herbs in a vegan sour cream (or coconut yogurt) base. No matter what else you’ll be serving to celebrate the Fourth of July, this soup would be a great addition to your meal — it’s especially refreshing served with grilled veggies.

Grate the cucumbers on a coarse grater, either by hand or in a food processor fitted with the grating blade, or quarter them lengthwise and slice very thin.
Transfer the cucumbers to a serving container. Stir in the sour cream, herbs, scallions, and enough rice milk to give the soup a slightly thick consistency. Season with lemon juice, cumin, salt, and pepper. Serve at once or refrigerate until well chilled.
For a heartier version of this soup, add a cup or so of cold, cooked barley.
For a pleasantly peppery flavor, stir in a good handful of chopped watercress leaves.
