I love to slice and dice my food without too much preparation. This is just that with lots of flavor. The cool sensation of cucumber combined with the creaminess of avocado makes for a wonderfully refreshing cold soup. This is also a great base for a guacamole dip, minus the water and cumin. Adding cucumber in with the avocado is a great way to reduce some of the fat and calories in the traditional avocado mixture without losing any flavor, especially if you like to eat a lot of it! Also this will work as a dip for veggies, chips, a spread on sandwiches, a salad dressing and great on raw noodles, like zucchini and carrots. Lot’s of ways to use this recipe with minor changes of water amount, use less for a thicker base or more for a thinner base. This is so very simple to make too. Let’s get started!
AVOCADO & CUCUMBER SOUP
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 medium avocado
- 1 cucumber (with or without the skin)
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1 clove garlic
- 1/2 squeezed lemon
- dash of himalayan salt
Cut cucumber into small pieces and place all ingredients in blender or food processor. Blend until creamy.
Serve with diced tomatoes, red onions and cilantro if you like. You could even top with julienned carrots, diced colorful bell peppers, etc…most veggies will make a nice garnish and taste well with this dish while also adding some texture.
This is 2 small servings or one large serving.
So very good and fresh! Enjoy…
