This vegan and gluten-free spring soup is perfect for lunch or a healthy snack on the go. Refreshing yet savory, it’s a lovely combination and takes only a few minutes to make. Enjoy the antioxidants and anti-inflammatory healthy fats. Put this soup in a mason jar and enjoy it on the run. Sip-and-go simplicity.

Avocados are a pantry staple in our homes. They contain vitamin B6 and folic acid, which are good for your heart. They also contain the healthy fats that your body needs to metabolize your food, and they help you glow with antioxidants that fight free radicals, boost the immune system, and slow the aging process. There are so many benefits.

Combined with the other nutrients in the soup, it’s a powerful and clean-eating combination. Enjoy the glow.

Kids enjoy it too. We made some toast with extra virgin olive oil and cut into wedges for them to dip into the soup.
