The preparation and cooking time does not include the time you would like to chill this soup. This depends on individual preferences. This soup gives about 95 cals per serving !
- 2 medium onions, chopped fine
- 4 cucumbers, peeled seeded and sliced
- 2 1⁄2 cups yoghurt
- 1 bunch fresh green coriander
- Tabasco sauce
- salt & freshly ground black pepper
- 2 cups stock (either vegetable or chicken)
- Wash the coriander thoroughly.
- Chop the leaves and the stalks and keep aside.
- Add the peeled and chopped onions and the peeled, seeded and sliced cucumbers with the coriander into a blender and mix well till everything is finely chopped.
- In a bowl mix the yoghurt with the Tabasco and the salt and freshly ground black pepper to your taste.
- If you want the spice to be a little less then hold back on the Tabasco adding just 4-5 drops, for a stronger flavour add in more Tabasco.
- Whisk the stock and the cucumber mixture into the yoghurt well.
- Cover and refrigerate for 2-3 hours allowing it to chill.
- For best effect, chill the bowls you want to serve the cucumber soup in and pour the chilled soup into them, when you are ready to serve.
- This can be garnished with a dollop of yoghurt and a few coriander leaves.
Nice simple quick recipe which is great for a hot summer's day. Kids weren't too keen but the adults of the house enjoyed this.
