Thai Cucumber Soup Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 2)
Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2009
Fantastic! I wouldn't have dreamed of a hot cucumber soup, but with the fish sauce taste it works for me. I used 4 cucumbers and seeded them, and two serrano peppers rather than 3 (seeded). I skipped the lemongrass as none was on hand. I used a little extra chicken stock and no water, and used an immersion blender right before adding the sour cream to give it a nice texture - but stopped when there was still some cucumber chunks. Will definitely make this again!

This just wasn't as good as I'd hoped it would be. The taste was very unusual.

DELICIOUS! I followed the recipe exactly and will definitely make it again. Great for using up those summer cucumbers! Very easy and fast prep if you're good with a knife.

This was one of few recipies which I could not imagine how the dish would come out until I actually make it...this is a very good sour-spicy soup. Even though I made it only with cucumbers following the recipe, I think I can add other vegetables, like mushrooms and carrots. I will make this again!

This was great, but I did change the recipe so this review might not be too helpful. I had some spicy homemade vegetable stock on hand, so I used that and left out the chile peppers. I also used tangerine zest instead of lemon grass because that is so hard to find. I recommend this recipe :)
