Combine half the beans with one cup of the rice milk in a food processor. Process until smooth and transfer to the serving bowl. Stir in the remaining beans and rice milk.

Quarter the cucumber lengthwise. Cut away the seeds, slice thinly and add to the bowl.

Stir in the radishes, dill, scallions and lemon juice. If the soup is too thick, stir in more rice milk. Season with salt and pepper.

If desired, top each serving with vegan sour cream.


*I didn't have any on hand so I made it without. It was fine that way.
