|Lemon juice||1 Tablespoon|
|Spring onions||6 Ounce|
|Vegetable stock/Chicken stock||1⁄2 Pint (300 Milliliter)|
|Fromage frais||3⁄4 Pint (450 Milliliter)|
|Chopped chives||1 Tablespoon (For Garnishing)|
|Chopped mint||1 Tablespoon (For Garnishing)|
|Ground black pepper||To Taste|
Peel and dice most of the cucumber, but save one or two portions with the peel on to give both colour and more flavour to the soup.
Too much peel creates a rather bitter taste.
Liquidize all the ingredients to give a smooth soup.
Serve cold topped with chives and mint.
This mixture is very refreshing if it is lightly frosted as described under Frosted Consomme.
Allow only a short time in the freezer.
