Cream of Cucumber Soup is a healthy and easy Vegan Soup. Creamy and delicious, this soup is best served hot.
It’s been a while since we’ve chimed in and with a good reason! We are just back from our fantastic two weeks Italian holidays and I can not begin to tell you how extremely hard it is to sit behind a computer and trying to focus again, after all those plates of pasta, pizza, gelato and coffee we’ve had.
And the sun! We hit the jackpot and had sunshine practically every day. Temperatures of 29°C. We swam, lay on the beach, went sightseeing, ATE, and walked over 150 kilometers!
It was absolutely fantastic and I can’t wait to share more on the topic when we come back to our senses and get in a couple hours of sleep. And when we finally warm up again. We returned home where it has been cold and raining for 2 weeks straight and somehow stepped from summer straight into deep fall. I am currently on the couch wrapped up in layer after layer. In September!
So while I dream about Rome, Napoli, the island of Capri and other sites we visited, I warm up with – soup, of course. Yap, we’re back in soup season for the next couple of months!
So this Cream of Cucumber Soup is yet another of my fave easy-to-make soups. I love such simple soups when you need just a couple of ingredients and max 30 minutes to have the dish on the table.
To make this Cream of Cucumber Soup you’ll need a couple medium-sized cucumbers that you peel and grate. If your cucumbers have large seeds consider removing them before grating. Mine had very little seeds so I just left them in there (we’ll blend the soup anyway). Sprinkle the grated cucumbers with some salt to bring out excess water and after about half an hour squeeze the water out. Then proceed with the cooking. Prepare the base of fried onions, garlic and diced potatoes with vegetable stock. When the potatoes are soft, just add in the grated cucumbers and some herbs, let them soften and then blend away.
A nice bowl of hot soup ready to eat in just about half an hour. Just perfect for a cold, rainy fall day.
