Cucumber soup

Quick cucumber soup recipe, as I just finished a phenomenal run around the dazzling downtown Dallas streets and getting ready to teach at Sur La Table for the day! 


My new best friend.

I had a few cucumbers left in my refrigerator - longing to be transformed into a light, refreshing soup. Ergo - a quick chop of shallots and sweat in olive oil until translucent and no longer crunchy. Throw in the diced cucumber (may include skins) - and season with smoked sea salt, juice of 1/2 lemon, pinch of cayenne pepper, 1 tsp horseradish (give it a kick!), dried oregano... allow to cook for about 5 minutes, then transfer ingredients to Vitamix and blend until pureed. Add chicken broth to thin to the consistency of your preference!

For a garnish, I sautéed some mini-shrimp with red bell peppers, then tossed with fresh microgreens, lemon juice and cilantro. Also garnish with 0%Greek yogurt to give it a "creamy" addition, without destroying your diet!

So refreshing, healthy and bursting with flavors...

Fuel yourself with fresh produce... and you will reap the benefits on all accords...

Off to TEACH! Spread the absolutely joy and love of cooking... got to!

Love y'all dearly!
