Ingredients of the cucumber gazpacho for 4 people:

Cucumber is a vegetable that can be found from May to September, which makes it more of a summer recipe.

  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 twenty sheets of mint fresh
  • 2 Bulgarian yogurt or a Fjord
  • Lime juice (1/2 lemon)
  • 1 small clove of garlic
  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil
  • 1 dash of sherry vinegar
  • Salt pepper

Fresh mint cucumber gazpacho recipe

  • Start by washing the cucumber
  • Peel the cucumber lengthwise, leaving about a strip of 2
  • Remove the seeds if there are any.
  • Cut the cucumber into small cubes
  • Chop half of the mint (about 10 leaves)
  • Chop the garlic

Then you have to put all the ingredients in a small bowl (cucumber, yogurt, mint, lemon juice, garlic, olive oil and sherry vinegar) to marinate.

  • We will let this preparation marinate for 6 to 12 hours (this step is not essential but allows better mixing of the aromas and flavors)
  • We then put everything in the blender
  • We rectify with salt and pepper
  • Leave to rest for 1 hour in the refrigerator.
  • It is served in verrines or even in soup plates if it is a starter.

As a decoration we use the remaining mint leaves and possibly small diced cucumber that you have kept.

  • It can be served with small toasted toasts lightly scented with garlic.

Enjoy your meal !
