Cold cucumber soup

Welcome back!

We have experienced a quite long heatwave here in the Netherlands with temperatures up to 40°C…perfect for my Southern soul and my summer love. So I have had enough time to make my favourite summer recipes and try out some new ones. Since I am all but a soup lover, my repertoire of soups is rather slim, however, there are a few summer soups I enjoy.

It’s been a while since I have gotten some requests to share the recipe for my Sopa de pepino, aka cucumber soup. Here it comes:


2 cucumbers

1/2 onion

1/2 green bell pepper

1 clove of garlic

1 cup Greek yoghurt

50 ml olive oil




1 handful fresh mint (alternatively 2 tbsp dried mint)

This recipe is incredibly easy and perfect for lazy people or who doesn’t enjoy cooking. All you need is a blender. Roughly chop all the veggies and blend everything together. Add enough water to get to the thickness you wish and you’re done. Ideally, put it in the fridge for a few hours and serve chilled. You can also add some ice cubes to speed up the cooling process. Enjoy!

What are your favourite foods when it is hot outside? Let me know in a comment and let’s share some recipes!
