However, cucumbers can also be enjoyed cooked, in soups of various types, and in any case offer a valid contribution in all those diets in which it is necessary to limit caloric intake, keeping in mind that they are particularly rich in water and potassium, in addition to which there is also a reduced amount of vitamin C.

Use in cooking

Cucumber-based preparations are different: in principle, they are eaten raw in salads of all kinds, as well as in aperitifs, while they can also be enjoyed cooked if they are served in soups with other vegetables.
