BmoreRawBoy's Thoughts

By BmoreRawBoy

Inspired by a record breaking heat wave in New York City. Soup with a thick, silky texture, crunch from vegetables, and enough spice to cool you down on a hot day.

I garnished mine with some mesclun and a dab of raw tahini dressing.

I only peel them because they are not organic, but local and probably quite dirty, and yes, the seeds go into the blender.

waterbaby- sadly, i have to peel cucumbers that are waxed. i wouldn't seed them though... i guess for the recipe you don't want it to be too watery. i'd add the seeds to the blender in the beginning and just add a little less water.

Waterbaby: the way I read this is you scoop out the seeds and put them in the blender. The rest of the cucumber is sliced as indicated further down in recipe.

I have a question about the cucumber... If the antioxdiants are in the peeling and the enzymes are in the seeds, why would a rawfoodist want to discard them??? Other than that, I an anxious to make the soup... Thanks for the recipe!!!
