Chilled Cucumber soup

Its getting hot in our part of the world and the time for everything cool and soothing.  I am constantly looking for simple recipes that can be made in a snap and does not need me to be in front of the stove at all. This is one recipe that fits the bill completely.  I found this on the Food Network website. I have tweaked it a little, because I did not have some of the ingredients. It tasted wonderful and is a most definitely going to be a summer regular at our place.

Ingredients( To serve 4)

  •  Cucumbers- 3 Nos, peeled, seeded and cubed
  • Dill- 1 sprig
  • Cilantro- 2 sprigs
  • Mint- 10 leaves
  • Spring onions- 2, chopped
  • Jalapeno pepper- 1, seeded
  • Low Fat Sour cream- 1/2 cup
  • Low Fat Yogurt- 1 cup
  • Black Pepper powder- 1/2 Tsp
  • Red Chili Powder- 1/4 Tsp
  • Salt- To taste
  • A few Ice cubes- optional

Put all the ingredients in a Food processor and run the machine till it becomes a smooth puree.  Chill the soup in the refrigerator for a couple of hours before serving. OR Add a couple of ice cubes to the soup right before serving. Garnish with a sprig of mint.
