Creamy Vegan Avocado Cucumber Soup

 Mmmmmmm.  Soups on!

Creamy Vegan Avocado Cucumber Soup

 Another icy, cold Winter day here in the North East but you can warm you soul with this creamy, flavorful cucumber soup.  The ‘creamy’ comes from rich, nutritious avocados, Creamy Vegan Avocado Cucumber Soupblended together with sautéed fresh vegetables, a pinch of dill and lots of black pepper to bring out the flavors.  I had peppers and celery to use up so that’s what went into this version but any root vegetable or winter squash, corn, carrots, even beans would compliment the avocado and cucumber base.

 

 I love this soup with a crisp cracker or spicy crouton.

It has a fancy presentation but is just as welcoming for a weeknight family dinner.  Blend your cucs more for a smooth consistency or leave some small chunks as I did for texture.  Either way, this soup is hearty enough to be your main dish or use it aside a big fresh salad with lots of hot crusty bread.
