When you blend cucumbers with silken tofu, tahini and olive oil, you get a creamy, protein-rich, chilled soup that’s great for a light lunch or as a starter for a dinner party. For the best flavor, let the soup chill for at least 1 hour, and up to 2 days, to allow the flavors to bloom and meld.

This soup is a great way to get healthy fats from tahini and olive oil. The cucumbers provide hydration. Because of the high water and fat content, it works nicely to fill you up so you feel satisfied. Pair it with a main protein like chicken or fish for a filling and complete meal.
