      Cold Cucumber Soup

      You can make this soup ahead of time and chill it, covered, in the refrigerator until ready to use.

      Ingredients

      3 leeks, washed and sliced in rounds
      2 cups vegetable stock
      2 cups milk
      6 cucumbers, peeled, sliced, and seeded
      3 tablespoons minced fresh dill
      1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
      2 tablespoons chopped green onion or chive
      1 teaspoon salt
      1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

      GARNISH
      plain low-fat yogurt, or low-fat sour cream

      Instructions

      1. Cook the leeks in the stock in a large soup pot for 10 minutes. Add the milk and cucumbers.
      2.

      Pour small batches at a time into a blender and purée until smooth. Add the dill, lemon juice, green onions or chives, salt, and pepper. Stir once or twice.
      3.

      Chill covered in the refrigerator for 3 hours
