BEETROOT-AVOCADO SOUP WITH CASHEW CREAM

Hey, Sunny people!

Spring is coming and the creation of the recipe for beetroot-avocado soup is a sign of my impatience, as well as a foretaste of this wonder time.

This is very light dish, which is perfectly suitable for summer time. It is chilled cream soup, which is made for few minutes in food processor. Very tasty and nourishing at the same time.

The recipe was created specially for my Cooking Workshop, where I presented spring dishes and the soup was leading dish of the event. I have good reviews for the soup and I am pleased to share this masterpiece with you to brighten up your spring expectation.
