Equipment

  • Blender

Ingredients

  • ½ tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion roughly chopped
  • 4 medium tomatoes roughly chopped
  • ½ cucumber roughly chopped with skin on
  • ¼ cup coconut milk
  • 1 ½ tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 tsp chopped mint leaves
  • ¼ tsp Maharajah style curry
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 3 drops lime essential oil

Instructions

  • Heat olive oil in a medium pan over medium. Add the onions and saute for 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, for another 2 minutes or until you begin to see the tomatoes give up their juices. Remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
  • Puree the tomato mixture in a blender by pulsing several times. Add the cucumbers and pulse until chopped into small pieces. Add in the remaining ingredients and pulse until well combined.
  • Chill the soup for a minimum of 1 hour. Serve in bowls garnished with mint leaves and a grind of black pepper.

Notes

TIP: To get a nice, clean cut on the tomatoes, use a serrated knife.
This soup is best served after it has been chilled for at least an hour to allow the flavors to meld properly. But if you just can't resist, you can have it right away.
Don't have essential oil? Check out the Essential Oil Conversion Chart to find out what you can use instead.
