Recipe: Cold cucumber soup with mint

Cold soups with herbs
August 06, 2011

Armenian CucumberAfter the first Armenian cucumber of nearly 400 grams, my plant stopped for a few weeks, then produced a second, slightly smaller, tasty cucumber.

Mint and chivesI picked up some sprigs of mint and chives, and a green pepper for a touch of spice (I chose a Numex Suave Orange pepper, a mild and aromatic chili variety).

With the armenian cucumber, the aromatic herbs and some roasted nuts whose aroma filled the room, I prepared a cold soup, delicate and refreshing.
