Blitzed Chilled Green Soup

This soup is incredibly versatile and easily scales up. Swap out any of the greens (softer greens like spinach and the leaves of Asian greens work particularly well). You can also substitute in other green herbs, like parsley, chives or chervil for more of a classic ‘Green Goddess’ flavour profile. The important thing is to make sure the greens are well washed and that the soup is served chilled. Serve it with sourdough and an antipasto platter for an easy light lunch for friends.

Serves 2.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 cups/ 100g chopped and washed mixed greens (English spinach, baby spinach, Asian greens, silverbeet all work well)
  • 1 cucumber/ 140g cucumber
  • Flesh of 1 small ripe avocado (any brown bits removed)/ 100g
  • ½ cup/ 20g picked mint leaves 
  • ½ cup/ 20g picked coriander leaves and stems
  • ½ clove of garlic, grated
  • 2 cups/ 500ml chilled water
  • ½ lemon, squeezed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Greek yoghurt/ extra herbs to garnish

METHOD

  1. Add all of the ingredients to a strong blender and blitz until it is perfectly smooth. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed (you may want to add more lemon juice or salt).
  2. Chill until serving, then garnish with Greek yoghurt and extra herbs. 

Note:

  • If the soup is too thick, you can add more water based on your preference.
