Cucumber Soup

from Williams-Sonoma

Serves 4

  • 3 peeled cucumbers
  • 1-1/2 cups plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 yellow onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 large slice white country bread, crust removed, cubed
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • Salt and white pepper

Prepare the cucumbers:
Cut each cucumber in half lengthwise. Using a teaspoon, scoop out and discard the seeds. Roughly chop 2-1/2 of the cucumbers. Finely chop the remaining cucumbers half and reserve for garnish.

Purée:
In a food processor or blender, combine the cucumbers, yogurt, 1 tablespoon of the mint, the garlic, onion, bread, and broth. Process to a smooth purée. Season to taste with salt and white pepper.

Garnish the soup:
Serve at once or, for a chilled soup, transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate for 2-8 hours. Ladle the soup into bowls. Garnish with the reserved cucumber and the remaining mint and serve.
