Green is a colour of growth, renewal, nature and freshness. It makes me feel hopeful and inspired. Even looking at a bowl of beautiful green soup or salad makes me happy. This soup is smooth and mellow. The avocado gives it perfect creaminess and the lemon adds a bit of tang to balance the flavours.
