Chilled Avocado and Mint Soup

Dear Kermit the Frog,

I respectfully disagree. It is quite easy to be green, especially when you’re a smooth and creamy avocado soup. It’s fun to be “cool and friendly-like,” bringing people together in the kitchen–because they really won’t want to wait for you to make it to the table. Yes, it’s easy to be green, and sweet, and a bit spicy, when you bring together avocado and lime and mint with cayenne.

It’s easy to be green when you’re topped with a sprinkling of feta cheese. Or crumbled crackers. Or homemade croutons. Yes, Kermit, it’s easy being green when you’re a vegan, gluten-free chilled avocado and mint soup–for as long as you last. Which won’t be long; after all, avocado and mint and cayenne together can make a Piggy out of anyone.

But still, it’s easy being green.
