Eat This: Lose Weight – Cold Cucumber Soup

dysfunctional chef copyThis Dysfunctional Chef has been experimenting with cold cucumber soup. Woo Hoo, Yahoo and Lah-Di-Dah!   Most recipes that I’ve stumbled across, tripped over and dipped my Dysfunctional tasting finger into include heavy cream or olive oil and I get why.  Creamier, tastier, but still–not how I want to cook or blend in this case.  So, I substituted light cream for heavy cream.  Feel free to experiment with half n’ half, and let us know what happens!

Heavy cream / 38% fat
Light cream / 20% fat
Half ‘n Half / 12% fat

Ingredients:

3 large cucumbers, peeled, seeded, diced (English cukes are fab)
(1/2 cup set aside for garnish)
3 cups plain yogurt
1/4 cup light cream (more or less, depending on how thick you like it!)
juice from 3 large fresh lemons
2 green onions chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup loosely packed dill
1/4 cup loosely packed parsley
salt n’ pepper to taste

Garnish:
Sprinkle 1/2 cup cucumber

Directions:

Blend all ingredients in blender or in food processor until creamy.  Chill overnight.  Mix/beat/blend together just before serving.  Garnish with cuke.
