Mealthy Tip

Don’t skip the smoky pepitas; they add the perfect amount of spice, crunch, and extra protein. Make them up to a week ahead of time and store at room temperature in an air-tight container—or make double and have them as a savory afternoon snack! If it's too hot to bake the crunchy pepitas in the oven, coat in the spice blend as directed and cook over medium-heat on a skillet until just toasted, about 5 minutes. Watch them carefully so they don't burn!

Smoky pepitas are the perfect complement to this chilled, creamy soup. The avocado lends a richness, but then the cucumber balances it our with a refreshing taste. Fantastic.

This is one of my favorite chilled soup recipes! The seasoned and roasted pumpkin seeds are really delicious too, even to eat by themselves. It adds a great crunch to the creamy texture of the soup. Well done.

Loved the cucumber and avocado together. The smoky pepitas were fire. Way better than buying the store's brand. Smoked paprika is such a great spice to have in your pantry, it's a must try.

The recipe says don’t skip the smoky pepitas, but of course I did skip it and now I totally regret it. The chilled avocado soup was really good, and I can only imagine how much better it would be with the pepitas. I love the garlic and cayenne spices, fantastic.

I know the recipe calls for smoky paprika but I only had regular paprika so that’s what I used. Still loved it! Great texture and taste.
