May 15th, 2012 | Chilled Avocado & Cucumber Soup
Well, here’s recipe number 2 from the Mother’s Day dinner I prepared! Chilled avocado & cucumber soup. This one was my dad’s favourite dish of the night. He ate almost all the leftovers by himself the next day. This recipe requires either a food processor or a large blender.
♥ 1 large cucumber, pealed
♥ 2 avocados
♥ 5 green onion ends (white parts only)
♥ 2 tbsp finely chopped spinach
♥ 1 clove garlic, minced
♥ 1c buttermilk
♥ lime juice (about 1-2 wedges)
♥ lemon juice (about 1/2 tsp)
♥ spices: paprika, dried celery root, cayenne pepper, salt, pepper
Chill 1-2 hours before serving. Garnish with sour cream, paprika, and shredded cucumber.
This is another great recipe for a warm day. It’s very refreshing and soothing. It will keep fresh in the frige for 2-3 days. Make sure you serve it chilled – it will taste bitter if it’s the slightest bit warm.
