Iced vegetable soup

2 comments Aug 28th, 2010 | By | Category: Recipes, Soups

Ideal for summer weather is this cold version of a vegetable soup. It is an alternative to Gazpacho, which I have written about quite a lot this summer. The iced vegetable soup can be done with a variety of vegetables, this version however is prepared with rocked salad, which gives it a spicy touch.

Preparation: 25 minutes

cooling time: 120 minutes

difficulty: easy


  • 500 gram cucumber
  • 1 hand full of rocket salad
  • 1 onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 yellow pepper
  • 1 spring onion
  • 1 piece of dry bread
  • 2 tabel spoons of white wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper


Peel the cucumber and remove the seeds. Chop up the spring onion, but only use the white bit.

Peel and cube the garlic and the onion. Put all vegetables into a blender and add the vinegar and some olive oil. Add the piece of dry bread, it will give the soup more consistence.
Mix all well, like a smoothie.
Season with salt and pepper.
Serve chilled.
Fridge for at least 2 hours.
