Gurken Und Kartoffelsuppe (Cucumber and Potato Soup)

READY IN: 20mins
Top Review by ChezPuppy

Good, but needs much more seasoning than the recipe calls for. We found we didn't like the texture of the chunks of cucumber, so next time I make this I'll puree everything before serving. With some adaptation, this could easily become a favorite :)
