Serve this creamy Panamanian soup as a refreshing first course all year long. It offers a nice change from the usual gazpacho for a cold soup choice. A total of three cucumbers will be needed; two will be sliced and one will be chopped. To easily seed cucumbers, slice them in half lengthwise after peeling and use the tip of a teaspoon to gently scrape out the seeds.

Ingredients

Step 1

Heat olive oil in large, heavy-duty saucepan. Add sliced cucumbers; cook, over low heat, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes. Add leek, dill and bay leaf. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes or until cucumbers are tender.

Step 2

Stir in flour until absorbed. Add water, bouillon and pepper; simmer gently, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in evaporated milk. Let stand for 30 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and remove bay leaf.

Step 3

Transfer half of soup into blender container; cover. Hold down lid with folded towel. Blend until smooth. Pour into large bowl. Repeat with remaining soup. Cover; refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Stir in chopped cucumber. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Garnish with additional fresh dill, if desired.
