Cool Avocado Soup

Posted by Lala Naidu on

What better way to celebrate the change of seasons than with light and bright flavors!

With the arrival of spring and the promise of warmer weather, it serves to exchange heavy foods like root veggies and tubers, and grains for lighter and more cooling foods like mint tea, coconut water, green drinks, lettuces, fennel, celery, cucumber, sprouts, etc.

This avocado soup makes a  satisfying lunch or light dinner. Serve with a large salad and mock-quesadillas made of sprouted tortillas or tortillas made from almond flour warmed with a nut-based spreadable cheese and sprouts.
