2 cups chopped cucumber (about 1 large cucumber)
1 1/4 cups water either hot or cold
1/2 cup cilantro
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons agave or other liquid sweetener (optional)
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1 clove garlic
1/2 to 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
1) Blend all soup ingredients together in a high speed blender until smooth.
This is really good when garnished with mushrooms and onion (marinated in nama shoyu or soy sauce is AWESOME), and with a few sprinkles of curry powder. But you could do so much with this recipe and the garnishments.
I've been wanting to try using basil instead of cilantro in this recipe but simple haven't gotten around to it. If anyone tries it, let me know how it tastes!!
