Cool Cucumber Watercress Soup

It’s really summer. Really It was 9000 degrees today with 3,000,000% humidity. I’m not kidding.

It can get very hot in Maryland. The last thing I want to do in this heat is cook. Sometimes I don’t even want to eat! So what can be better on a day like today than an insanely fast chilled soup? Nothing!!!

Cool Cucumber Watercress Soup 
1 cup plain yogurt
1 cucumber, peeled,seeded and chopped
1 handful of watercress, clean leaves only

1. Blend everything together.
2. Chill.
3. Serve.

Notice I didn’t tell you to wash your watercress or cucumber. I did tell you to use clean watercress leaves so I guess I implied that you should wash your produce. But ultimately, it’s up to you.

This soup is very good with mint instead of watercress. It’s also great with some avocado. It made a very refreshing lunch today. I was afraid I would be hungry in the afternoon but I was actually okay. It must have been the yogurt. But I was satisfied.

Try it and let me know what you think! Enjoy!
