  • 2 tablespoons sliced onion shallots
  • 3 medium cucumbers, peeled and chopped
  • 1/3 cup (85ml) red wine vinegar

  • 2 cups (500ml) water
  • 3 bird’s eye chillies, seeded and minced
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander
  • 1 tablespoon lemongrass, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (optional)

Had an excess of home grown cucumber and found this recipe. Very quick and easy as I had all the ingredients apart from the Coriander. I have a heavy cold and this soup is just what the doctor ordered!! Delicious. - 13 Nov 2010
