    Chilled Cucumber Soup

    There are certain classic dishes where everyone claims to have found THE ultimate recipe.

    Chilled Cucumber Soup

    We don’t want to overdo it with self-praise, but this cucumber soup is so exceptional that everyone who tastes it raves about it for at least three weeks in a row. Promise!

    Chilled Cucumber Soup

    The great thing is that this cold cucumber soup is not just a culinary delight, it has many great properties that make it the undisputed best summer dish ever.

    The preparation is so simple; an enthusiastic cook can conjure up an outstanding dish in no time at all.

    The main ingredients – cucumbers and tomatoes – are real all-rounders: peptidases and bitter substances contained in the cucumbers support digestion, have a hydrating effect and improve memory. Lots of beta-carotene, the high vitamin A content of tomatoes strengthens the eyes and the round (mostly) red fruit is said to help prevent cancer.

    Both tomatoes and cucumbers are available from local suppliers during summer months, improving CO2 balance of these fitness marvels.

    This recipe is almost infinitely adaptable: replace the Greek yogurt with a plant-based alternative and you have a delicious, vegan dish. If you like it spicier, you can double the amount of chili peppers. In addition, this soup is easy to prepare.
