Mirj! If I could give you a place in the Guiness Book of World Records for The Person I admire the most, I'd give it to u most happily and willingly. We loved this soup beyond words. It was so refreshing like you said in the short description. I made it last night, around 10pm and refrigerated it overnight. At lunch time, I poured in the low-fat yogurt, and, as I didnt have chives, I used parsley as a substitute and ah, it gave it a kick! It gave such a lot of flavour, it was wonderful. I had 2 bowls of this with 2 bread slices for lunch and its been 5 hours now, and I'm still going strong! Thank U, Mirj, I'm your fan and my mom, dad and me, love this soup! Dad tossed in a few dumplings into his bowl(dumplings are what we call "boondi") and he would like this soup to be repeated often at home! Thanks, again! :)
Well this is hard. First of all it did not look like Cucumber soup. It tasted pretty good but it just didn't look right. My wife said 3 stars but I felt 4. It needed the sour cream and salt and pepper. Still I felt it should have been called something different than Cream of Cucumber Soup. Still like I said I enjoyed it but I am not sure I would make it again.
Very Refreshing Soup. I had no leeks or shallots in house, so used more onion and a tad more garlic. Nice new way to utilize cucumbers. This recipe goes into my recipe box. Yum. Thank You for sharing.
