Anyway......my mom isn't doing to well. She can eat whatever she wants because she barely eats. She is in the hospital and thought
I thought others might like some cold soups, too? Thanks
Here's what my dad sent. The butter doesn't make sense. Also, peel the cukes. They make it with the Kitchen Basics no added salt broth.
ICED CUCUMBER SOUP 6/4/2012
1 LARGE POTATO, PARED AND DICED
3 CANS CONDENSED CHICKEN BROTH
2 LARGE CUCUMBERS
2 LARGE LEAKS (1 CUP). We did not use.
1/4 CUP (1 AND 1/2 STICK) BUTTER OR MARGARINE
Cook potato in 2 cans of the chicken broth until very soft in a medium-size saucepan (about 15 minutes).
Pare cucumbers, cut in half lengthwise. Scoop out seeds and slice thinly.
Saute cucumbers and leaks in butter or margarine until soft (about 5 minutes).
Add potatoes and broth and remaining can of broth. Bring to boil, lower temp and simmer 5 minutes, cool.
Pour some of the mix into a blender and whirl until smooth. Continue with remaining mix.
Put in a bowl, cover and chill (possibly 4 hrs).
Garnish with cucumber slices and chopped dill if desired ( we did not do).
