Avocado And Pea Soup

Avocado And Pea Soup

Cuisine: American
Servings: 4 people

Avocado and pea soup is by far one of my favorites. It's creamy, full of flavors and satisfying enough for a main meal.

This soup happened as an accident that has now turned into a household staple. The avocado makes it a velvety and rich soup bursting with flavors and nutrients; it's basically a detox in a bowl.

Getting green soup in your life is definitely the best way to detox your body and throwing in avocado makes everything that much better.

Avocados are full of healthy and beneficial fats that help to keep you full and give you glowing skin. What more could you ask for? This soup is the perfect base soup to start with; you can add your other favorite greens and come up with a new family favorite.

Try adding some greek yogurt or sour cream right before serving with a pinch of sumac or paprika.
