This is a soup I have devised with my vegetarian friends in mind. It is simple to make , very cheap and nutritous. Try it and tell me what you think.
This is for 4 people
1 vegetable stock dissolved in 700 ml of warm water
4tbsp of coconut milk
2tbsp of vegetable oil or olive oil
1 medium onion, peeled and chopped,
2 cloves garlic and crushed
50gr mint leaves (reserve couple for garnishing)
salt & pepper
Peel cucumber and cut in half lengthways. Remove seeds and cut into very small pieces. Heat oil in pan saute onions and garlic, for a couple minutes. Add cucumber, salt and pepper to taste. Gradually add the vegetable stock and simmer for 15mins or until the cucumber is tender. Now add the chopped mint leaves and simmer for another 10mins. Remove soup from heat, stir in coconut milk. Liquidise , return to heat but not boil, check seasoning. Serve immediately garnishing with the remainder of mint leaves.
