The soup is a healthy and refreshing dish, perfect for a light starter dish.

  • 2 cucumbers peeled, seeds removed and sliced
  • 650 ml vegetable stock
  • 1 medium avocado
  • ½ cucumber peeled, seeds removed and cut into small cubes
  • 40g peeled brown shrimps
  • 4 sprigs dill

Method:

1. Cook the chopped onions and garlic in a little vegetable oil until soft and translucent.

2. Add the cucumber and cook for approximately 10 minutes until the cucumber is soft.

3. Add the vegetable stock, bring to the boil and then simmer for 20 minutes.

4. Place in a liquidiser and blend until it is smooth.

5. Pass through a fine sieve into a bowl, and place this in a bowl of ice to chill the soup.

6. When the soup is cold, peel and chop the avocado, add to the soup and blend again until it is smooth and season with salt and black pepper.
