Chilled avocado and cucumber soup with feta

Hubert Cormier, Nutritionniste

With its fresh, light taste, the cucumber is undoubtedly one of the easiest vegetables to include in your summer menu. However, the tendency to feel hungry not long after eating it it due to its low energy density. This is why I opted for the combination with avocado, which adds a subtle taste without removing all the freshness of the cucumber. It enriches this cold soup and transforms it into a satisfying, refreshing option that will sustain you until your next meal.
