This soup is creamy. It's rich. It's full of fabulous flavors. It's incredibly simple to make. And it's healthy.
I saw this recipe and just knew I had to try it. I love chilled soups in the summer, and I love tomato based soups. The fact that this soup had an avocado in it just made it all the more appetizing to me.
Ahh...and the ease of this soup. Have I mentioned how easy it is? It's easy. Oh. So. Easy.

I served this with a spinach quinoa bake (the recipe will be up in a few days!) and a fabulous green salad. It was a very filling and tasty meal. It's a meal I can't wait to make again. And let me tell ya, the soup made the meal.
