Raw Cucumber & Avocado Soup w Capers
This is a lovely, delicate soup, served cold. Although made with avocado, it is not heavy at all.
Prepared by:
Cuisine: raw & vegan
Recipe type: soup
You need
  • ½ tall cucumber, chopped
  • 1 avocado, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 cup of coconut water
  • 1 heaped tsp of fennel seed
  • 1 pinch of mild chilli powder
  • juice & zest of ½ lime
  • juice & zest of ½ lemon
  • 10 fresh basil leafs
  • pepper
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp of capers (or more, but it shouldn't become a caper soup :-) )
  • optional: ½ tbsp of Smoky Toasted Coconut Flakes, or plain toasted coconut flakes.
To do
  1. put everything except for the last two items in the blender, and whizz until it is a nice fluffy soup
  2. taste and tweak
  3. cool in fridge
  4. when you serve, top with capers, an extra basil leaf and coconut flakes.
Notes
If you want to make toasted coconut flakes: just toss some flakes in a dry hot pan and stir, they will toast pretty quickly. Once off the heat they will continue to crisp.
Here's a recipe for baked smoky flakes, and here's one for raw smoky flakes.
