Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 leek light green part only, washed wall and sliced thin
  • 3 celery stalks diced
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 3 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 unpeeled English or seedless cucumber
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1 avocado diced

Instructions

  • Heat the olive oil in a medium-size pot on medium-high heat, and add the leeks, celery and garlic.
  • Saute the vegetables until tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the chicken or vegetable stock and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes or until the vegetables are soft.
  • Chill the soup well, and then transfer it to a blender. Add about half of the cucumber and cilantro and blend well to combine.
