This is the basic recipy for my cucumber soup. You can eat it hot or cold, just how you like it. I have made this soup when I had a lot of cucumbers left over and froze some of it.
1 tblsp butter
1 tblsp olive oil
150 g onions, chopped
2 cloves of garlic
100 g potatoes, peeled and chopped
3 cucumbers, washed, seeds removed and chopped
250 ml veg stock
250 ml white wine
200 g cream
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp marjoram
1 tblsp dill
2 tsp sweet mustard
Put the butter and olive oil in a pan, let the butter melt.
Add the onions, garlic and potato, stir-fry until the onions are glassy. Add the cucumber and stir-fry for two or three minutes, it should take a little bit of colour by now.
Add the stock, wine and cream and let the soup slightly boil until the potatoes are done.
Blend the soup with a hand blender, add all the spices. Stir the soup and wait for two or three minutes, then check if you need to add some more spices.
Serve hot or cold.
If you want to serve this soup cold, you can replace the cream with yoghurt. Add the yoghurt as soon as the soup has cooled off to about room temperature and put it in the fridge.
