Well these are more like highballs, asparagus, cucumber highballs that is. Last night, right before falling asleep and wondering what to do with asparagus and cucumbers, I came up with the idea of putting the soup in a cucumber 'glass'. You see, I have been noticing so many delicious cold soups lately both around the city and around the web that I wanted to make some too. Asparagus are all over the place right now so asparagus have to be part of the mix. I scooped out the cucumber and left a shell for the 'glass' the scooped cucumber went into the blender with some asparagus stems -saving the tips for garnish. Making up recipes based on flavor pairings can be easy (strawberries and cream) and most often it can be difficult (curried raisins), in this case it is a little complicated. Should I make it a spicy sweet soup or a mild and savory soup that refreshes?
Cool curry cucumber soup.
