Cool Avocado Soup
Servings: 3 cups
This avocado soup will cool you down without heating up the kitchen.
- 1 ½ c low sodium vegetable broth
- 2 medium-sized avocados
- 2 Persian cucumbers
- 2 fistfuls of cilantro
- 2 Tbsp chopped green onion
- ¼ c lime juice about 2 limes
- 1 large or 2 small cloves of garlic
- ½-¾ tsp salt
- a dash of cayenne
- finely diced red bell pepper
- finely diced jicama
- finely chopped green onion
Juice the limes, remove the flesh from the avocados, peel and roughly chop the cucumbers and chop the green onions.
Remove the thicker stems from the cilantro and lightly chop.
Place ½ tsp of the salt and the remaining soup ingredients in the blender and run on high for 1-2 minutes or until smooth.
If it's too thick, add a couple of tablespoons of water or broth and blend briefly. Taste for salt level and add more if needed.
Garnish with finely diced tomato, jicama and green onion.
