    Recipe for Creamy Cucumber Soup:
    Ingredients:

    • 4 cups Ashley cucumbers, peeled, seeded & thinly sliced
    • ½ cup plain yoghurt
    • 1 avocado, diced
    • 1½ cups vegetable broth
    • 1Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

    Method:

    • Sauté the onion & garlic in the olive oil on medium-high heat, stirring occasionally until tender (1- 4 minutes).
    • Add the lemon juice & cook for 1 minute. Add 3½ cups of the cucumber slices, plus the broth, salt, ground pepper & cayenne; bring to a simmer.
    • Reduce heat & cook at a gentle simmer until the cucumbers are soft (6- 8 minutes).
    • Pour the soup into a blender. Add the avocado & parsley; blend on low speed until smooth.
    • Pour into a serving bowl & stir in yoghurt.
    • Chop the remaining cucumber slices.
    • You can serve the soup warm or refrigerate & then serve it chilled.
    • Before serving, garnish with the remaining chopped cucumber & more chopped parsley.

    Directions

    • Inside your Slab of Seed box, you’ll find a soil “chocolate slab”; each block of the slab is sown with a cucumber seed.
    • Snap off your "chocolate" blocks. Space them as shown on the side of the box.
    • Bury just below the soil surface, cover and water every 3 - 4 days until seedlings peep out.
