Meatless Monday ~ Chilled Cucumber Soup

Welcome back to Meatless Monday at the Green Phone Booth.

After a nine-day vacation -- and eating approximately 27 meals out -- I'm ready for some good home cooking. Last week's Meatless Monday recipes all sounded fantastic. (And what a great turnout!) I can't wait to try the Vegetable Frittata at Get Healthy Cheap and Midnight Maniac's Luxurious Four Cheese Mac & Cheese looked like the absolutely perfect comfort food dish.

I was really intrigued by the Chilled Cucumber Soup at Toni's Treehouse. I've never really eaten cold soups for some reason but what a great combination of ingredients here.

What's on your plate this Meatless Monday? Let us know in the comments, or share your link below.

I like the idea of Meatless meals. I have always planned atleast one meatless meal a week.
I don't think you should say ALL meat is bad for you. Pasture fed, organic, no chemical, not fed corn meat is great if you can find it. Your body needs nutrients found in red meat so if you are not eating it you need to get it in other foods. We should all be more aware of where our food comes from and who is growing/processing it. Cancer may come from cows that are fed GM corn. Cows are not made to eat corn, we have changed that!
Everyone should be educated about the food process and what we are eating.

That cucumber soup looks delish! What a treat on a hot summer evening. Gotta bookmark that one in case we ever GET a hot summer evening around here!

Totally into the veggie stir fry at the moment! I dice the heck out of whatever vegetables I've got on hand, throw in a little soy sauce, hot chile sauce and a teaspoon of brown sugar. Serve over rice and devour.

My wife is a vegetarian and It is hard to try to be one. But I think if this chilled cucumber is going to serve in our table. I will want to be a vegetarian.

Thanks for the link! The chilled cucumber soup is really yummy. And this is from someone who has always been kind of freaked by cold soups. Lol. Love sharing recipes and getting new recipes to try. Thanks for hosting Meatless Monday!
