Chilled Cucumber & Leek Soup

0 Recipe Reviews |Rate this Recipe| 16 Saves

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.
