Cucumber Soup

I enjoyed my soup last night. When I read the recipe I thought putting the corn in was unnecessary, I was wrong! Just like the original recipe says – it adds a nice sweetness. The suggested add-ins were lemon and ginger. I didn’t add ginger after tasting the original blend because I liked it so much. You can see the small wedge of lemon in the bowl – I tried a little in one section – I would also pass on the lemon. Basically, with the cucumber, avocado, and corn this makes for a really simple, yummy soup. Make sure to have some nice crusty bread on hand!
