Cold soup for hot weather
We are having lovely weather over here in Germany and it feels like summer. YEAH! After having a soup very similar to this at work yesterday I wanted to make one today as well.
This recipe is super esay, you don’t need many ingredients and you can prep it in advance if you like to.
Recipe for 2-3 as a starter
1 large cucumber
1 tsp olive oil
2 cups ayran (turkish yoghurt drink like buttermilk)
1 cup buttermilk
1 tbl spoon chives
1 tbl spoon parsley
2 prawns per person
Fleur de Sel, white pepper, paprika, cayenne, a dash of sugar
Peal the cucumber and remove the seeds using a teaspoon. Then cut the veggie into smaller pieces.
Put the cucumber into a blender. Add ayran and buttermilk plus all the spices, herbes and olive oil.
Blend the soup for a smooth texture.
You can grill or braise the prawns using some olive oil.
For tonight’s dinner I paired the soup with some bruschetta with two different cheeses and olives. It was a similar recipe to this bruschetta recipe
The gazpacho is a nice low calorie starter and a packed with minerals, lean protein and veggie power!
