A simple base recipe for a velvety bright chilled soup combines avocado, lime and almond milk. Fresh garbanzo beans give some texture and protein. For an enhanced flavor profile add in a third cup of English cucumbers and two scallions. Sunflower seeds could be substituted for pistachios. —Sagegreen
