Chilled Cucumber and Avocado Soup
We hope that summer is treating you well in your neck of the woods. Here in Sonoma County the sun is shining, warm and hot during the day around 80-90 degrees Fahrenheit while night times are cool at 50ish. Despite this perfect weather for grapes we still feel a little hot and bothered at 5-6pm so we thought this delicious cool gazpacho might work for you as it does for us. No idea where we picked up the recipe so can't give credit where it is due but hope you enjoy!
Ingredients (Serves 4)
1/2 Firm ripe avocado
1 3/4 Cucumber (we prefer the English style - less seeds to navigate) About 1 1/2lbs
1 (8oz) Plain Low or full Fat yoghurt
3tbsp Chopped Chives
1tsp Lime Juice
1/2 tsp chopped Jalapeno with seeds (more if you like it spicier)
1 cup small ice cubes
Peel and pit the avocado. Blend all ingredients in a blender until very smooth - Garnish with a few extra Jalapenos and some croutons if you're feeling fancy. That's it SUPER SIMPLE AND MIGHTY TASTY!
