Cucumber Gazpacho

Cucumber Gazpacho-11

Summer garden produce is finally ripening in our garden.

We are starting to pick tomatoes and today picked 2 Richmond green cucumbers.

So along with some fresh basil, garlic, chives, mint, red chilli, parsley, salt, pepper and a little water we blended 6 tomatoes and our peeled cucumber into this delicious cold soup which I have called cucumber gazpacho because of the delicious fresh cucumber it had.

All the herbs and veggies were freshly picked and we enjoyed the soup sitting in the garden watching heaps of bees enjoying flowering herbs and busily pollinating the plants in our garden.

LOVE!!! Summer so far!

It sounds wonderful. I made your Spinach and spring onion pie thingy which is one of my favourites. All stuff from my garden. Very satisfying to have ingredients at hand all the time without leaving home, isn't it.
