BHOGG member Sue has given us this tried and tested recipe for those missed giant cucumbers.
When you find a huge cucumber hiding under the leaves, what do you do with it? Answer: make delicious soup!
- One large ‘forgotten’ cucumber
- Greek Yoghurt – 3 tablespoons
- Garlic – 2 cloves
- Lemon – zest & juice
- Parsley, Dill, Spring Onion – optional garnish
I used one large fat cucumber which I peeled and put in the blender. Add the Greek yogurt, garlic cloves finely chopped and the juice and zest of a lemon. Whizz it all together. Serve chilled. I added a drizzle of olive oil on the top of the bowls. It was very good.
I didn’t bother to remove the seeds, I thought I would need the additional liquid, which was the right move. And the blender dealt with the seeds anyway. I also didn’t bother with the handful of parsley or dill which the recipe said, as I don’t grow parsley and the pigeons had eaten my dill!
Almost worth ‘forgetting’ to pick a cucumber that is ready!
