When I get on a food kick I tend to overdo it, but I really can't stop eating this cucumber soup. It's so fresh and crisp and perfect for lunch with a chunk of crusty bread and a nice slice of brie.
Cold Cucumber Soup (adapted from the Real Simple recipe)
1 large cucumber
1/4 cup light sour cream
several sprigs fresh mint
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp fresh black pepper
pinch (or more) cayenne
Chop the cucumber and toss with the salt, pepper, cayenne and mint. Drop into a blender and add the sour cream. Blend until smooth. Chill and serve with a dollop of sour cream on top!
