Cucumber / Peanut Ramen Soup

So I had a mushy cucumber, that could not be peeled. Threw it into the freezer, and it turned hard. What can you do with frozen cucumber?

Put it into soup.

  • 1 package Ramen soup mix.
  • 6 cucumber slices, frozen, and yes unpeeled.
  • 1/4 t curry powder.
  • 1/4 t ginger.
  • 1/4 t mustard.
  • 1/4 t sesame seeds.
  • 1/2 t brown sugar.
  • 1/2 t vinegar.
  • 1/2 t peanut butter.
  • 1 h mixed greens (bagged salad).

  1. Boil water.
  2. Dump ramen flavour packet, spices, sugar, vinegar, peanut butter into 1 quart soup bowl.
  3. Pour boiling water into bowl, mix everything well.
  4. Add ramen noodles, crumbled.
  5. Fill bowl with water, to 1" below rim (don't want water overflowing when you carry the soup bowl).
  6. Add cucumber slices and salad greens.
  7. When the bowl is cool enough to carry, the noodles will be nice and soft - and the cucumber slices will be just slightly chewy.
Serve with a nice chunk of sourdough bread.
