Cucumber Gazpacho

Continued good weather has prompted me to prepare cooler food.
One of them is a pleasant cucumber Gazpacho that does not take much time, energy or ingredients to make.
For 2 /3people, you need :
1 big cucumber, peeled and cut into quarters
1 small pot of natural yoghurt
2/3 cloves of garlic, peeled
A handful of fresh mint leaves, rinsed
Salt and pepper

Place all the ingredients in a food mixer and whizz.
Serve in mini soup tureens and decorate with very small mint leaves or a very small teaspoonful of fromage frais with herbs.
This can be served as a starter, a snack or a dip (in which case you can replace the yoghurt with single fresh cream).
It is very healthy and if you are counting the calories, it will not add pounds to your waist line!
It also means you do not have to spend time over a hot stove.
You can double the quantities and keep some in the refrigerator for 24 hours, adding the juice of 1/2 lemon for conservation.

Bon appétit!
