Raw cucumber soup/sauce/dip

The cucumber growing season is coming to an end (homegrown); so we need to hurry up to get a last taste of this excellent and delicious soup/sauce.

Below, I’ve added 12 facts – about cucumber and its health benefits – in ‘scientific’ detail.

The cucumber soup/sauce/dip is prepared in 5-10 minutes and can be used in many different ways. Served separately as a soup, or as a sauce for raw spaghettis made out of zucchini, or as a sauce for a raw pizza.

Try to use these kinds of raw sauces and combine them with cooked potatoes, lentils or beans. In this way, many important nutrients will be preserved, and you will have the full health benefits of them. However, don’t forget to cool down the cooked food to 115ºF (46ºC) – or less – before adding the raw cucumber sauce.

It might also be used as an excellent dip for raw bread rolls, raw crackers, raw chips, but also for non-raw crackers and bread rolls.

  1. I have been in a boring routine of eating the same green soup all the time. This is what I was looking for. Something new and simple. Will give this a try sometime this week!

    • Once you find a routine – it sticks, but this soup will certainly open up some new combinations for you. Bon appetite, Jack!

  2. This looks good! Have to give this a try.
