GETTING READY

MAKING
3. In a casserole, take drained cucumber, lettuce and herbs. Cook gently over a very low flame till cucumber becomes tender.
4. Add stock and thicken with corn flour. Let it stand in a hot place so that the soup thickens without boiling. Remember to keep stirring to maintain a smooth texture.
5. Add hot milk and cream. Check for seasoning.
6. Reheat but do not boil as this will make the cucumber bitter.

SERVING
7. To serve French Cucumber Soup, top with chopped chives.
