Welcome to the first post in my new 5 Minute Eats series. I want to demonstrate that eating well doesn't take a lot of time or effort so recipes in this series can all be made in five minutes or less.
This Chilled Cucumber Soup is inspired by a dish my American friend Sara once made for me in Shanghai. It's perfect for hot weather as it's amazingly cooling and refreshing. It packs quite a protein punch, too, containing 300 grams of soft tofu, which gives it a soft, natural set yoghurt texture.
For dinner I'd serve it as a first course but for lunch I'd eat it as is with a salad and piece of fruit. Enjoy!
