Cold cucumber soup with yogurt and fresh basil

  • 1 3/4 lbs seedless cucumbers – peeled and cut in 3” pieces (or 2lbs regular cucumber, peeled, seeded and cut in 3″ chunks)

  • ¼ medium onion – skinned

  • 1-2 garlic clove (preference) – skinned

  • 1 jalapeño – stem removed, halved and seeded

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup (or brown sugar)

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1–6oz non-fat plain yogurt

  • ½ – ¾ chicken stoke (or water) to taste

  • 1 medium yellow tomato – seeded and cut into 1/8” cubes or 1/4 red bell pepper chopped into small pieces for garnish

  • tiny basil top leaves as garnish

  • small dab of crème fresh or sour cream as garnish

Step 1: Place all ingredients in the bowl of a food processor with 1/2 cup of the chicken stock or spring water. Pulse a few times so the ingredients are coarsely chopped, then process until soup is very smooth, about 2 to 3 minutes. If necessary, thin with the remaining chicken stock or water to the desired consistency. (I use it all to get more soup)

Step 2: Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate 2 hours or overnight, until well chilled – it will thicken some. Optional - place the soup in the freezer for 30 minutes before serving.

Step 3: Ladle soup in chilled soup bowls or cocktail glasses.

Step 4: Place a small dab of crème fresh or sour cream on top, toss a few pieces of the tomato and/or pepper casually on top of soup and garnish with the basil leaves.

Coarse ground pepper (optional as garnish)
Serve immediately.

The soup can be refrigerated up to 2 days.
