An icy blend of cucumber and sour cream, this soup makes a refreshing starter for a summer luncheon.

Ingredients:

  • 4 large cucumbers, peeled, seeded, and chopped
  • 3 green onions, white and green portion, sliced
  • 1 cup canned cannellini beans, drained
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • Salt and freshly ground white pepper
  • 1 cup sour cream

Instructions:

1. In a large saucepan, combine the cucumbers, onions, beans, chicken broth, and 1 tablespoon of the chives. Cover the pan and cook at a gentle bubble for 20 minutes or until the cucumbers are tender.
2. Pour into the container of a blender or processor and whirl until smooth. Transfer to a large bowl. Blend in the salt, pepper, and sour cream. Cover the bowl. Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled. Serve cold, sprinkled with the remaining tablespoon of chives.
