Avocado Soup

I love avocado.  I love it in guacamole, I love it sliced and served with Mexican food; I even like eating it right out of the shell as a snack.  But I’ve never tried avocado soup. This will change soon, as I recently discovered a recipe in one of my mother’s cookbooks, Cooking with Just Four Ingredients.

Avocado soup(The picture actually comes from a different, somewhat more complicated recipe from sheknows.com).

Not only does it have only four ingredients, but it only has a few steps.

Yield: Serves 4

Ingredients

2 large ripe avocados

1 1/4 cups sour cream

4 cups chicken broth

small bunch fresh cilantro

Garnish: lime juice, salsa

Instructions

  1. Cut avocados in half, peel and pit them. Chop fruit coarsely & put in food processor with 3-4 tbsp sour cream. Process til smooth.
  2. Heat chicken stock in a pan. When it’s hot but below simmering point, stir in the rest of the cream with salt to taste.
  3. Gradually stir avocado mix into hot broth. Heat gently but don’t let mixture approach boiling point.
  4. Chop cilantro. Ladle soup into heated bowls & sprinkle with chopped cilantro & black pepper. Serve immediately.
