Farmer Jamie’s Zucchini & ‘Cado Soup

This one is a favorite of Farmer Jamie when zucchini season rolls around.  She is allergic to cilantro so she uses parsley.  I missed scallion season so I used chives, and I used had the amount of ground coriander in place of crushed coriander seeds. Whatever your alteration, this is a pretty tasty summer soup!

  • 2 avocados, peeled, pits removed, coarsely chopped
  • 3 scallions, coarsely chopped

  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp coriander seeds, crushed
  • 1 cup Cabot plain yogurt
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

1. Put the zuke, ‘cado, scallions, garlic, chili powder, and coriander seeds into a food processor; process until smoothly combined. 
2. Transfer the mixture to a medium bowl; stir in the yogurt. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Season with salt and pepper to taste; garnish with cilantro or parsley.
