Avocado Cucumber Soup with Crab

Avocado Cucumber Soup with Crab

Ready in 1 hour

Chilled summer soup that will refresh and have you wanting more.

"Just finished making this and it's delicious! Cool and refreshing. I only juiced one lime because it seemed like a lot and I used a whole cucumber. I also put in one diced roma tomato because I had it and thought it was on the ingredient list - LOL! I have the crab for the garnish, but haven't made that part yet. So far it doesn't have to have that, but I'm sure it will taste great with crab."

Preparation

For the soup:

In a blender, combine all ingredients. Blend on high until completely smooth. Taste for seasoning. If using a small blender, do in two batches. Pour the soup into a storage container and put in the refrigerator for at least one hour. For the best effect, chill the bowls also.

For the garnish:

Pick through the crab meat to remove ALL the shell pieces. Place the crab meat in a mixing bowl with the olive oil, halved cherry tomatoes, and finely chopped chives. Season with salt and pepper

To serve:

Pour the soup into 4 chilled bowls. Spoon the crab salad into the center of each soup. Drizzle some of the leftover oil from the mixing bowl around the salad.

I used about 3 cups water and a small container of whipping cream and extra cucumber couldn't find ripe tomatoes but my husband found wholly Molly avocado and it worked fine. We enjoyed it on this hot day.

Wasn't as flavorful as I'd imagined it would be.

I used plain yogurt instead of sour cream and skipped the vinegar. Also used chicken broth instead of water (smaller amount 'cause I like it thick). didn't bother with the crab garnish - yummy enough as is.
