Avocado Soup

Avocado’s our main squeeze. She’s a game changer for kale salads, the best part of a mexican meal, and even satisfying on her own sprinkled with a little salt & pepper. So it’s no surprise she’s the leading lady in this recipe. This soup is like a summer chowder – a little thicker, creamy (yet dairy-free) and best enjoyed cold. We were a little skeptical when we gave this recipe a try and thought it might turn out to be too rich, but we were very pleasantly surprised. This vegetarian (and vegan) meal is refreshing and filling, not to mention chock full of avocado’s many nutrients and healthy fat and red bell pepper’s immune-boosting vitamin C and vitamin A.
