Here’s Emily’s entry into the Gimme Recipes! Contest. I just picked some fresh organic cucumbers from my garden, and this sounds like a great way to enjoy them.
This is a simple soup that is sooo refreshing on a summer day, and easy too.
5 cucumbers, peeled, seeded, and roughly chopped
4 stalks celery, roughly chopped
4 scallions, white and green parts, roughly chopped
1 sweet green pepper, seeded and roughly chopped
a handful of parsley, stems and leaves (or cilantro, according to taste)
a handful of fresh dill leaves (or 2 Tbsp dried)
3 cups of plain yogourt
salt & pepper, freshly ground
Blend all vegetables and yogourt in batches in a blender or food processor until smooth. Add salt & pepper and sugar to taste. Chill for two hours or up to 2 days.
