Cucumber and Dill Soup
I hate to admit that I let our veg garden overflow this year, and not in a good way. It is a bit of a jungle now and within it I found about 10 cucumbers, all a good size. So what better thing to do with them than make soup… it is cool, soothing and very delicious served as cold as possible.
375mls /1 and a half cups of yoghurt
1 large clove of garlic
A handful of dill leaves
2 tbsp tarragon leaves
70ml extra virgin olive oil
a squeeze of lemon to taste
1 tsp salt (perhaps sensible to add half a tsp and season to taste)
- Whizz it all together in a blender.
- If you would like it extra smooth pass it through a sieve before blending in the herbs.
