This super easy, low fodmap, healthy cucumber soup is a delicious option on a hot day. It is low fat and super low calorie.


  • 600g cucumber, 2 large, peeled and chopped
  • 3 tablespoons chives, finely chopped
  • 2 Massel chicken, beef or vegetable stock cubes
  • 1 tablespoon fresh mint, chopped + 1 tablespoon for garnish
  • 625ml water


Place cucumber and chives with chicken stock cubes, 1 tablespoon mint and water in a saucepan, bring to the boil and simmer for 30 minutes.

Sieve the soup through a strainer – don’t use a blender otherwise the cucumber pips will turn the soup bitter. Chill in the fridge

Microwave option:

Place cucumber and chives in a casserole dish with the stock, mint and water. Microwave on high for 15 minutes. Sieve through a strainer. Chill in the fridge until chilled.
