Cool as a Cucumber

Biking to and from work these days has been, well, hot. I needed a bit of encouragement and luckily, Simon was there for me - he met me halfway and we cycled slowly in this crazy heat.

Days like these, at home, no bbq, no oven.

This soup can be made vegan - no need for the yoghurt if you don't want to - the almonds make it creamy enough.

Cucumber, Mint & Almond Soup

3 large garden cucumbers
1 cup veg stock
3/4 cup slivered almonds
handful of mint, some basil & dill
1/3 cup yoghurt
Lemon juice
Salt to taste

This looks lovely and cool, perfect for this weather. I bike to work too and am finding it pretty hard but it's still my fastest way to work ... darn heat wave!

I made the soup on Friday for a picnic in the park! It tasted delish! Thanks for the great recipe.
