Since it's way too hot to eat bowls of piping hot soup, why not enjoy a creamy bowl that is best served room temperature or slightly chilled? This luscious soup is the perfect end of summer dish since it features seasonal produce, like avocados and peas and is light and healthy due to the addition of low-fat Greek yogurt.

Not only is this soup healthy, it's really quite pretty, too! The avocados and peas give it a bright green color and the drizzle of oil gives it a fabulous textural contrast. If you're hosting a party, serve this beautiful soup in shooter glasses and top with a crusty crouton!

avocado and pea soupIngredients: 

  • 1 large ripe avocado, seeded with flesh scooped out
  • 1-1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons roasted sesame oil (divided)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups low-sodium broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/3 cup fat-free Chobani Greek yogurt (plain)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley
  • 1 pieces of garlic bread, toasted and chopped into bite-size pieces
  • Dash of salt
  • Dash of pepper

Directions: 

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of sesame oil in a large pot over medium high heat. Add the onions and cook until soft, about 2 minutes. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 2 more minutes. Add in the broth and water. Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat to low. Simmer for about 10 minutes. Add in the peas and cook until just soft, about 3 minutes.
  2. Remove the soup from heat. Add in the yogurt, avocado, parsley and salt and pepper. Blend using an immersion blender until soup is creamy.
  3. Pour into the bowls. Drizzle each bowl with the remaining sesame oil. Top each with a few croutons. Serve room temperature and enjoy!
