Avocados are one of my favourite foods, and I am encouraged to read that they are also good for me too. I am also a big fan of soups, and so was interested when I found several recipes for avocado soup.

The one that really took my fancy was this Raw’kin Spinach Avocado soup. Ingredients include:

  • spinach
  • ripe avocado
  • tomatos
  • apple
  • onion
  • rinsed capers
  • fresh thyme
  • cayenne pepper (I substituted hot paprika as it was all I had)
  • olive oil
  • lemon juice
  • water to create desired consistency (can be hot to create a warm soup) – I used much less than suggested in the original recipe.

This raw food lark is proving simpler than I had initially anticipated. Once again, the only instruction is to whizz the whole lot up in a blender (although I used a food processor):

It took a good 4 -5 minutes:

for the soup to really become rich, smooth and creamy:

It really was a vibrant green in colour. I could feel the health benefits from just the look and smell, but to be fair it also tasted great. Having the onion, apple and thyme really helped to create something with lots of interesting flavours….
