    Default Summer-strone

    1/2 cup Israeli Couscous
    1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    1 pound kirby cucumbers—peeled, seeded and sliced
    One 15-ounce can diced fire-roasted tomatoes
    1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
    2 cups vegetable broth 1 zucchini, shredded
    1 cup loosely packed flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
    1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
    Grated peel of 1 lemon

    In a pot of boiling, salted water, cook the couscous until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water.

    Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over high heat. Add the cucumbers and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes and paprika. Using a food processor, and working in batches, puree the mixture. Return to the pot and stir in the vegetable broth, couscous and zucchini. For cold soup, refrigerate until chilled.

    In a small bowl, combine the parsley, parmesan, lemon peel and remaining 1/4 cup olive oil. Serve the soup drizzled with the parsley pesto.
