Danya's Cool As A Cucumber Soup

(adapted from www.vegan-food.net)
  • 5 or 6 large cucumbers peeled and seeded
  • half a fresh pineapple or 1 can of crushed pineapple (no-sugar added)
  • 10 fresh basil leaves
  • 6 fresh mint leaves
Coarsely chop the cukes and the pineapple and blend all ingredients in a blender/food processor until smooth Chill in refrigerator until ready to serve. For vegan and raw--soup is delicious as is. For an extra treat I added a big spoonful of sour cream to each bowl and garnished with a basil leaf. Beautiful and SO easy!

Quotes

"Let us never forget that the cultivation of the earth is the most important labor of man. Man may be civilized in some degree without great progress in manufactures and with little commerce with his distant neighbors. But without the cultivation of the earth, he is, in all countries, a savage. Until he gives up the chase and fixes himself in some place, and seeks a living from the earth, he is a roaming barbarian. When tillage begins, other arts follow. The farmers, therefore, are the founders of civilization."
~Daniel Webster
