Creamy avocado soup gets a brightening kiss from lemon and lemon basil in this delicious chilled soup. It's light on the palette but rich in texture, so consider serving it as an appetizer (cute in shot glasses) or as a starter.
1cuplow sodium vegetable brotha mild, light tasting broth works great
zest from one lemon
2tablespoonsfreshly squeezed lemon juiceone lemon
1tablespoonwhite wine vinegar
1tablespoonlemon basilchopped (or use regular basil with extra lemon zest)
1 1/2teaspoonskosher salt
Add all ingredients to a blender and puree until very smooth. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours to let the flavors blend (can be made the night before). Taste, and add more salt and/or another squeeze of lemon juice, if necessary. Note that the soup will taste very mild when first blended, but don't add salt at this point. Wait until it's set for the minimum time before making seasoning adjustments.
