Creamy Chilled Asparagus Pea Soup
On a warm day, chilled soup is a good option. One of the best chilled soups I ever enjoyed at a restaurant was a creamy asparagus pea soup. I am sure it contained lots of dairy, but it was so flavorful and tasted like spring. I recreated a vegan version free of dairy and gluten that is so simple to make, you can have it ready in 5 minutes; it requires no cooking too. I use heart healthy avocado to make it creamy in place of the dairy, and you would never know; it is so silky. This would be wonderful with some salad on the side for a light spring/summer dinner.
