Chilled Cucumber Soup!

Have I ever told you about the time I drank cucumber sludge before bed for a week?  No, how about my 7 spicy mustard greens a day challenge?  Okay, all jokes aside, I can not stand wasting our fresh garden food.  Hence some crazy, (not so good), challenges and recipes.


Right now I am swimming in cucumbers, but I’ve found a winning combination.  This recipe was inspired by the cucumber soup at All Souls Pizza.  I have a garlic allergy, so I wanted to make my own version without the garlic.


I hope you enjoy and use up your veggies :).


Chilled Cucumber Soup


  • 2 or 3 English Cucumbers (I used 3)
  • 1 cup Organic plain yogurt
  • ¼ cup Leek or onion of your choice (this is raw, so put in less if you want a less strong onion flavor.  I used the white part of one garden leek.)
  • 3ish tablespoons of lemon juice
  • A bunch of fresh or dried dill
  • *Optional avocado (this makes it extra creamy)
  • Salt and pepper 



Chop cucumbers into ¼ inch quarts.  Place all the ingredients into your Vitamix or blender.  Blend it all together, pausing to stir or shake the blender to make sure everything gets nice and smooth. Serve in bowls with a little drizzle of olive oil.  Enjoy!
