Recipe

Chilled Cucumber Avocado Soup

Chilled Cucumber Avocado Soup is smooth and creamy, but without cream. It’s a good appetizer in the really hot weather, I like it with fish, whole grain salads or dairy for an extra light meal.

  1. In the introduction it’s mentioned that this is dairy free, but the ingredients call for a significant amount of yogurt. Is there a dairy-free alternative that someone can recommend, if one were to serve this as a soup course to a meat meal?

    As is, the recipe has served me well during the Three Weeks.

    This looks great, but I have not tried it yet, if I were to try it for a meat meal, I would use Tofutti pareve sour cream. I use it in many recipes like this and it works great.
