Chilled Vegetable Soup
1 medium English cucumber, chopped
1/2 sweet green pepper, chopped
1/2 sweet red pepper, chopped
1/2 small onion, chopped
1 medium tomato, seeded and chopped
1/4 cup parsley, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon fresh dill, or more to taste
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup non-fat sour cream
1/2 cup plain non-fat yogurt
1-3 cups V-8 juice
Combine first eleven ingredients in a large bowl. After you have added the sour cream and yogurt, add V-8 juice until the soup is still very thick, but spoonable.
If you prefer the soup to be less chunky, you may also run everything through a food processor or blender for a more uniform consistency.
Makes six cup if all three cups of V-8 are added.
