Summer has officially begun…sunshine, blue skies, shorts, t-shirts, flip-flops, running under the garden sprinkler (the kids), enjoying long evenings out on the patio (the grown-ups).
Here’s an ideal little something to sip in the shade while you enjoy your summer…
(about 1.5L/ 2.1pt)
2 cucumbers, peeled, halved, pitted and chopped
3dl/ 0.63pt vegetable stock
1 clove of garlic
4tbsp olive oil
100g/ 0.2lbs bread cubes
a couple of twigs of parsley
salt & pepper
Make the stock and add to all the ingredients. Purée and add the seasoning. Chill for a couple of hours (if your a little bit better organised than I am, you can prepare it the day before and leave it to chill over night). Thats it, you’re done!
