Homemade soup is one of my favorite foods any time of year. It may not be top of mind during the sweltering summer months—unless it’s a refreshing chilled soup, of course. Gazpacho seems to get all the cold-soup love, but I'm obsessed with the recipe below, which incorporates hydrating cucumber, healthy fat– and potassium-rich avocado and cooling cilantro.
Not only is this soup nutrient-rich, dairy- and gluten-free and super-refreshing, it’s also fast, foolproof and best made in advance, so you can whip up a batch to keep in the fridge for quick meals. It can also be served in shot glasses at a party.
