Creamy Cucumber Soup


serves 2 ~ $.77 per serving
 
 
 
ingredients

  • 1 cucumber ($.60)
  • 1 avocado ($.78)
  • 1/2 medium onion ($.05)
  • 1 clove garlic, pressed
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil ($.10)
  • 1 cup water for blending

directions

Finely dice a 2 inch piece of cucumber and set aside for later. 
In a blender, puree rest of the cucumber, avocado, 1/4 of the onion, garlic, and olive oil. Chop the cucumber and avocado first to make blending easier. 
Add the water as needed for blending. 
Let this blend for a minute or two, to get really creamy.

  3. I am so so glad to have found this blog!! I am a college student, and have been trying out raw, but get worried because I have to eat so much raw-ness to fill myself up, so I get stressed about my budget. This stuff looks very satisfying and delicious. Thank you, I can't tell you how refreshing it is to find an active raw food blog. I need that inspiration. Do you know of any others that an aspiring raw foodist should check out? Thank you!
