The cilantro, lime juice, onion, and garlic in this soup make the base flavorful, the avocado makes it creamy and rich, the cucumber adds lightness, and the stock provides even more nutrition. Plus, it is lots of fun to vary the toppings of this soup too! This was a favorite recipe among the recipe testers. For a slightly crunchy and spicy addition, blend your favorite hot pepper in the soup.
