Cooling Cucumber Soup

This past weekend in the Okanagan was a scorcher!! Today’s recipe inspiration comes from the epic vegetable garden growing this year with a TON of cucumbers. While cucumber salads are great, I wanted to switch it up. I’ve been eyeing some cucumber soups online, but have never actually made one myself.

Cucumber soup might look a bit odd, but don’t knock it until you try it! I did not have any avocados, a staple in most cucumber soups, so used cashews instead. If you want, I think you could sub avocado instead of the cashews in this recipe, though I haven’t tried it.
