Farmers Market Recipes: Cool Cucumber Soup

HildeIt’s been a very hot summer in Boston (the second hottest July on record, actually), so there have been a lot of nights when you don’t feel like cooking. This soup is just what we need right now.

Cool Cucumber Soup
Serves two.


  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1/2 cup fresh mint
  • 1/3 cup sour cream or plain yogurt
  • 1 Teaspoon to 1 Tablespoon rice vinegar, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • pinch cayenne pepper


Peel cucumbers. Blend all ingredients until it reaches a smooth consistency. Taste to see if you want more salt, vinegar, or cayenne pepper. Chill in refrigerator. Enjoy!
