Recipe for chilled cucumber and lemongrass soup

Serves 4

The bright green color and bold flavor of this bowl come from using the entire cucumber, including the seeds and skin. If possible, avoid waxy supermarket cucumbers and instead use organic cucumbers or freshly grown cukes from a farmers’ market in the summer. Use a blender rather than a food processor to puree the mixture.
