Cold cucumber, radish and avocado soup with black beluga lentils

Oh, how I love this type of cooking!  A few ingredients, one pot, no fuss, no washing. Effect- great!

It will take you literally 10 minutes to prepare this soup. Just cook the beluga lentils in advance and have all the soup ingredients at hand. You will get a great, refreshing soup, perferct for the summer heat. If you want this to be more filling, just add more lentils.

10 minutes, I'm not kidding. Ready? Your time starts now!
