"We were first introduced to this soup in a restaurant. Once we had it I was pestered to find it online and make it. I found it nowhere and so this is the nearest I came to the restaurant style."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

This was the first time I ever made or ate cucumber soup and was a bit skeptical but I had tons of cucumbers coming out of our garden and had to do something with them so I thought what the heck I'll try it. The only thing I did different was I boiled a leg and thigh section of chicken in a separate pot until tender then shredded it and added it to the simmering soup. I also used about a tablespoonful of powdered chicken soup base but powdered chicken bouillon would also work just as well and I reduced my salt accordingly. I also added some of the water to my soup that I had boiled my chicken in but you could add more of the canned chicken stock instead if you like. The flavor was so good that my husband said he'd be happy if I made this soup from now on when we have lots of cucumbers coming off the garden. P.S. He came back for seconds. I think he was as surprised at how good this soup was as I was. Thanks for sharing the recipe! I think the addition of the soup base powder and especially the real chicken bits really made the difference in how flavorful this soup turned out.
I did not find this recipe enjoyable. I followed the recipe and included the first reviewer's comments of adding the cooked, shredded chicken, added extra bouillon, added a little extra chicken broth. I thought that this soup lacked all flavor. I would not do again!
A simple, light, and yummy way to use up your extra cucumbers! Thanks for the recipe!
Delicious. My son, who hates cooked vegetables, also enjoyed this soup.
Awesome flavour! I added fresh cilantro only because I love cilantro. I'd Definitely make this again
This is good, but it's still missing something to be like they have at my favorite Thai restaurant. I think it would help if I use a more concentrated chicken broth next time. I'm not sure what else to adjust, but I definitely think that would help. I liked it well enough to give it another shot anyway.
