Soups for All Seasons

Creamy Chilled Avocado Soup

Creamy Chilled Avocado Soup

Requiring no cooking, this creamy chilled avocado soup is remarkably refreshing on a hot summer day. It’s best eaten on the same day as it is made, since avocado discolors and does not keep well under refrigeration once peeled. This raw soup makes a great opener for a Southwestern-style meal of burritos, enchiladas, or the like. Adapted from Vegan Soups and Hearty Stews for All Seasons. Photos by Hannah Kaminsky. more→
