This is a great soup to make on a steamy summer’s day since it requires no cooking at all. Just assemble the ingredients and mix them together, then eat and enjoy.

Cool Cucumber Soup


  • Cucumber – 1 large
  • Mint – 4 bushy sprigs
  • Natural yoghurt – 500 g
  • Cream – 150 ml
  • White wine vinegar – 1 table spoon
  • Black pepper
  • Salt
  • Ice cubes – optional
  • To garnish 4 small sprigs mint


Chill four soup bowls in the refrigerator. Trim the cucumber then grate it coarsely, with its skin, into large bowl.

Strip the mint leaves from the stalks and shred enough to give 4 tablespoons or bundle the leaves together and cut diagonally into fine strips with kitchen scissors. Add the mint to the cucumber.

Stir the yoghurt,  cream and vinegar into the bowl. Season well with salt and pepper and stir again.

Divide the soup among the four chilled soup bowls. Add one or two ice cubes to each one( optional) only  if you like to chill the mixture quickly.

Garnish with the small sprigs of mint and serve.
