Try avocados in a new way by making this Avocado Soup with Crab! Avocados are well known for being extremely versatile.
I’ve made all sorts of things that you would NEVER think you could add avocados into. Like Chocolate Avocado Muffins, Avocado Chocolate Truffles, even Avocado Popsicles! I’ve tricked my boys many times into eating healthier by substituting avocado for butter or oil in recipes. 😉
But when I was asked by California Avocados to make a soup using avocados, I was like wait. That’s a thing?! Yep, it sure is! And it is INCREDIBLE.
We all know how creamy avocados are, so just imagine blending up a couple of California Avocados with broth and seasonings. It makes the most creamy, light, but filling avocado soup! I could not stop dipping my spoon in.
The Avocado Soup alone is dairy free and vegetarian. Obviously the crab topping isn’t vegetarian but you can always leave the crab out and just use the tomato, cucumber and seasonings.
I love topping this Avocado Soup with Crab Topping. You get protein from the crab, coolness from the tomato, and crunch from the cucumber. It balances out the creamy soup perfectly! Grab a spoon and dig in!
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil
- 2 large California Avocados
- 2 cups vegetable broth
- 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
- 1 tsp. salt
- ¼ tsp. pepper
- ½ cup lump crab meat
- ½ English cucumber, diced small
- 1 small Roma tomato, diced small
- Salt & Pepper, to taste
- Chopped Parsley, for topping (optional)
- Pour oil into a small skillet, and turn the heat up to medium. Add garlic when oil is warm and cook, stirring until fragrant, being careful not to burn the garlic. Turn off heat and set pan aside.
- In a blender, pour in the garlic and olive oil then add peeled and pitted avocados, vegetable broth, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Blend together. Taste and season as appropriate.
- Pour into a container and place in refrigerator to cool.
- Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine crab, tomato and cucumber. Season with salt and pepper. When soup is chilled, pour into bowls and top with crab cucumber mixture. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and enjoy!
