Welcome to Ankitha Gadag recipes. I am your “host” Ankitha Gadag. Ankitha is the recipe curator behind all of the original recipes found here on Ankitha Gadag’s Recipes.
Here is a cool spin (get it… cool? cucumbers? …nvm) on a recipe I posted a while back on Ankitha Gadag Recipes for a chilled avocado & cucumber soup. This recipe is great, because it’s dairy free for all my vegan friends and still has the same great flavor of cucumbers.
Check it out on the blog below!
Since the girls started school, it feels like a whirlwind of nonstop activity! It seems as though I am even more time challenged than ever before. I want to post this recipe, however, before the winter really sets in and no one can even think about making a cold soup. There is always the possibility […]
via Cold Cucumber Soup — cookingforthetimechallenged
Light, refreshing and creamy with cool flavors from mint and dill
You don’t normally think of soups in the summertime, especially not in Texas. However, this COLD cucumber and avocado soup hits the spot with its refreshing ingredients. It’s creamy, with a slight heat from the garlic & serrano. It gets layers of flavor from the fresh dill and mint. Contrary to traditional hot soups, this chilled soup is absolutely delightful on a hot summer afternoon on the patio (margaritas recommended).
I was inspired to create this soup when a friend put me up to a food challenge. Her criterion was “cucumbers” and “chilled.” This was out of my comfort zone. Normally, my recipes pack heat from various spices and they normally involve a protein of some form. This was such a fun challenge, because it was so easy to make with relatively few ingredients that I would never think of combining. More than likely, most of these ingredients are already in your fridge.
Anyways, give it a shot (before the summer ends!), and let me know how it turns out 🙂
You will need:
- 1 avocado
- 1 serrano
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 english cucumber (peeled)
- fresh mint (1 bunch)
- fresh dill (1 bunch)
- 1 1/3 cups sour cream
- 1 1/3 cups greek yogurt
- 1 cup vegetable broth
- Combine all ingredients above in your blender.
- Puree to a fine, creamy texture
- Add salt, black pepper to taste. I topped off with some smoked paprika for a little kick 🙂
That’s it! Easy peeezzyyyy 🙂
Let me know how it turns out, would love to hear from you!
