I never would have believed it, until someone made me eat some: cucumber soup can be served warm and is really yummy! It's easy, quick, inexpensive, low fat, and really tasty - just perfect comfort food for the colder months! This is a traditional Belgian recipe. Even my kids loved this and said it tasted like broccoli and cheese soup - but better (I agree!). It has a very mild taste and the cucumber is not overwhelming. Some black pepper really brings out the best in this recipe.
