There’s no reason to only use cucumbers raw—they are wonderful sautéed then pureed with avocado for a silken-textured soup that’s good warm or cold.

Make Ahead Tip: Refrigerate for up to 4 hours.
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
1 tablespoon  extra-virgin olive oil
2 cloves  garlic, minced
1   small onion, diced
1 tablespoon  lemon juice
4 cups  peeled, seeded and thinly sliced cucumbers, divided
1 1/2 cups  vegetable broth or reduced-sodium chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon  salt
1/4 teaspoon  freshly ground pepper
Pinch of  cayenne pepper
1   avocado, diced
1/4 cup  chopped fresh parsley, plus more for garnish
1/2 cup  low-fat plain yogurt

DIRECTIONS
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add garlic and onion; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 1 to 4 minutes. Add lemon juice and cook for 1 minute. Add 3 3/4 cups cucumber slices, broth, salt, pepper and cayenne; bring to a simmer. Reduce heat and cook at a gentle simmer until the cucumbers are soft, 6 to 8 minutes.


Transfer the soup to a blender. Add avocado and parsley; blend on low speed until smooth. (Use caution when pureeing hot liquids). Pour into a serving bowl and stir in yogurt. Chop the remaining 1/4 cup cucumber slices. Serve the soup warm or refrigerate and serve it chilled. Just before serving, garnish with the chopped cucumber and more chopped parsley, if desired.
