Coriander Avocado Soup

Courtesy of Russell James, the Raw Chef

Recipe as shown on the Raw Chef website:

2 avocados
3/4 of a medium cucumber
1 stalk celery
Juice of 1 lime
Small handful of fresh coriander (cilantro)
2 teaspoons cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon tamari
1 cup water (if wanting warm soup use hot water)
Sour cream and chopped chives to garnish
- Blend all ingredients, except the sour cream and chopped chives in a high-speed blender until smooth.
- Transfer to a serving bowl and garnish with sour cream and chopped chives.
Sour cream
1 1/2 cups cashews
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
- Blend all ingredients in a high-speed blender. Add a little extra water one tablespoon at a time if you’re having trouble getting the cashews smooth.

The flavor was subtle and smooth. I added a little bit of cayenne, but it didn't make much of a difference. Either way, this soup is perfect on its own without any alterations. My boyfriend claimed that the sour cream actually was very similar to the real thing.
