I made this recipe with plain soy yogurt instead of sour cream and vegetable broth in the place of the chicken broth (vegetarian style) it was very very delicious!!!!!!!!!!
I used regular sour cream and Better Than Bouillon instead of low sodium chicken broth. It was delicious. Even my fiance, who had never eaten cold soup before, liked it. Very easy to make. I will be making it again.
This was a nice cold soup....easy enough to make. I added some garlic and used a shallot instead of the regular onion. I also used regular sour cream for more flavor and a creamier texture. The soup tasted better to me the second day. I would suggest chilling it overnight instead of the 8 hours because it gives the soup more time for the flavors to marinate together, thus bringing out the full flavor of the soup.
I absolutely *loved* this cucumber soup recipe. Made it for guests awhile ago, and doubled it easily with no problems. (It was still TOTALLY gone after just 2 days!) I used a couple of green onions for the onion in the recipe and it was really good! I plan to make this again really soon. Thanks!!!
This was great. The radishes were a nice touch. I chopped up more cucumbers and diced a few tomatoes to use as a crunchy garnish.
Before serving a soup I added 2 tablespoons of heavy cream, and beat it a little. It gives not only a richer flavor, but also an airy lightness to the soup. But still the soup was too plain as it's said in other reviews above, so the next time I made this soup I added 1 tablespoon more lemon juice and 1 mild-cured cucumber pureed together with fresh cucumbers. And poured just 2 tablespoons of water instead of 1 cup broth. Finally, I added cubes of toasted garlic rye bread like it shows in my photo. These ingredients were added from another similar recipe and I don't regret it. For these small recipe improvements, I'd give all five stars. Excellent!
So easy & so delicious!!! Made for TOTM 7/12 Ice Cold Delights.
I used a red onion, English cucumbers and stuck it in the freezer for half an hour and it was delicious
I gave this recipe 4 stars. This is very good it's the first time I've had a cold cucumber soup. I made this recipe for my Culinary class. I made a few changes to the recipe. I cut the recipe in half. We didn't have sour cream so I used Culinary Cream, no dill so I had to leave it out and no lemons so that to had to be left out. My teacher had me cook my cucumber a bit before pureeing them. I cooked the cucumber in the chicken broth with the onion, parsley and white pepper. I did also add 1 minced garlic clove. I didn't chill this for the required 8 hours maybe 2-3 hours at most and it was very good. I did try this warm and it's much better cold. Overall I'd make this again! Thank you for posting a good recipe! Christine (internetnut)
Carole, I'm sorry I have to say this, but my husband and I didn't care for this soup. We found the soup to be rather bland, and even after I added 1 tsp of Worcestershire sauce, and a Dash (1/8 tsp each) of cayenne red pepper, garlic powder, and salt, (as others have suggested to add to the soup) we still didn't care for it. Sorry the soup didn't suit our taste buds, but I am glad to see others here have enjoyed the soup.
