Simple Cucumber Soup

Recipe by  

"The most simple yet one of the best soups I had so far. A simplified version of my mum's cucumber soup. No need for salt, pepper, or seasonings, just a good vegetable broth. I like to have it with a good slice of toasted bread and some good cheese."

Directions

  1. Melt butter with the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook and stir onion and garlic in the butter mixture until tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Add cucumber and zucchini slices; cook and stir until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour vegetable broth over the mixture; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and let simmer until the vegetables are cooked through, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from heat and cool a few minutes.
  2. Pour soup into a blender no more than half full. Cover and hold lid in place with a towel; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Puree in batches until smooth.

Simple indeed and as written I give it 4 stars. The flavor from the cucumber and zucchini came through nicely but I still felt it was lacking some herbs or seasonings. I ended up adding some dill, a dash of cayenne, and a dash of salt and this took it from a 4 to a 5.

Made this soup today and stuck to the recipe...until I tasted it. The flavor was very zucchini and I wanted to tone that taste down a little. Added some paprika, oregano, basil and a couple dollops of sour cream. Much better.

Made this today to use some fresh cuke and zuke from the farmer's market. Used some green onion I had, too. Yes, needs some herbs and seasoning; dill, salt and pepper and cayenne like the previous reviewer. Also gave it a shot of Frank's Red Hot (hubby's fave!) Good soup!

I added salt, celery salt, cayenne pepper, dill weed, and greek yogurt as some other reviewers suggested and with these added it's a 5 out of 5, delicious! Also, sliced cucumber in finished soup.
