Servings 4 people


  • 1 knife
  • 1 pot
  • Immersion mixer
  • 1 pair of scissors


  • 400 g cucumbers
  • 400 g lettuce
  • 2 spring onions
  • 4 spoons Grapeseed oil Benvolio 1938
  • 450 g vegetable soup
  • 1 spoon almond milk
  • 12 leaves melissa
  • 4 leaves basil
  • 2 mint
  • 1 lemon
  • Salt enough
  • Pepper enough

For the yoghurt sauce:


  • Clean the vegetables. Coarsely chop the lettuce. Peel the cucumbers with a peeler, leaving only a few strips of skin. Cut them lengthwise into four and remove the central seeds. Cut them into small pieces and keep them aside.
  • Finely slice the spring onions and stew them in a pan with 2 tablespoons of Benvolio grape seed oil. After 10 minutes add the cucumber and lettuce. Leave to gain flavour for 5 minutes. Pour in the hot stock, add salt and cook for 10 minutes. Switch off the flame, leave to cool for a few minutes and blend with an immersion blender with half of the lemon balm leaves, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 pinch of pepper, 4 basil leaves and 2 mint leaves. If you wish to obtain a more fluid velouté, add 1 tablespoon of almond milk.
  • Prepare the sauce by emulsifying the yoghurt with the Benvolio grape seed oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Cut the chives with scissors into small pieces of a few millimetres, taking care not to crush them. Incorporate it into the seasoned yoghurt and mix well. Allow to rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  • Serve the velouté with the yoghurt sauce and garnish with herb leaves to taste.
