Green Goddess Summer Soup

1

ABOUT THE RECIPE:

This refreshing chilled soup is a welcome first course on a hot day and also substantial enough to serve as a main dish. Blending avocado and tofu together creates a creamy texture, while the parsley contributes a fresh taste and stunning green color. Be sure to make this soup at least three hours ahead of time so it has plenty of time to chill before serving.

Makes 4 servings

INGREDIENTS:

14 to 16 ounces soft regular or silken tofu, drained
1⁄2 cup unsweetened dairy-free milk, plus more as needed
1 ripe avocado, pitted, peeled, and chopped
1⁄3 small sweet onion, chopped
1⁄3 cup (lightly packed) chopped fresh parsley
4 to 6 fresh basil leaves
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 to 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS:

Put the tofu, dairy-free milk, avocado, onion, parsley, basil, brown sugar, optional oil, vinegar, lemon juice, salt, cayenne, and garlic in a blender. Process until smooth and creamy. If the soup is too thick, add a small amount of water or more dairy-free milk, 2 to 3 tablespoons at a time, to achieve the desired consistency, pulsing or blending briefly after each addition. Pour the soup into a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate for 3 to 6 hours.

To serve, ladle the soup into four chilled bowls. Garnish with chopped fresh chives. Serve immediately.
