Cucumber Mushroom Soup
In Vietnam cucumbers are used in many dishes including soups. Since cucumbers are in season, we decided to make this soup that’s as light as the summer breeze.
- 3 quarts water
- 1 1/2 sliced cucumber (3/4 inch slices)
- 8 pieces dried or fresh mushroom
- 1/2 dried radish
- 1/2 teaspoon mushroom seasoning
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pinches pepper
Place water, sliced cucumbers, dried radish, and mushrooms in pot and let boil.
Once water boils, lower heat to a simmer and cook for 20-30 minutes.
Remove mushroom from pot, slice into strips, and place back into soup. Season soup with mushroom seasoning, salt, and pepper.
Place soup in a bowl and top with your favorite herbs. We dressed ours up with fresh cilantro and green onions.
