Cucumber and Avacado Soup

1 avocado
1 cucumber peeled and seeded
lemon juice
s and p
ice cubes
chicken bouillon or reduced stock

put avocado and cucumber in bowl with garlic and cilantro
blend with hand blender
add ice cubes and blend till crushed
add s and p and cilantro blend.
when it is done it will be smooth and thick. Too thick add more ice
I cut a radish into slivers and put it on top of soup as garnish. very nice

1 ripe avocado, 1 or 2 cucumbers cut into chunks (can keep the skin on if not waxed), 1 chicken bouillon cube, a handful of fresh cilantro, 1 tsp or less of garlic chili paste for a little heat, 2 cloves fresh garlic, a tbs or so of preserved lemons or if you don't have any use juice of a lime or lemon, 4 ice cubes, a little fresh ground pepper, add water near top......then blend. Et voila!
