Chilled Avocado Soup
- 3 medium avocados (peeled, pitted, and diced)
- 1 tablespoon shallots (peeled and chopped)
- 1 teaspoon olive oil (or butter)
- 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
- 2 cups veggie or chicken stock
- 1 cup soy milk
- sea salt and black pepper to taste
- 1 medium tomato (diced)
In a blender or food processor, blend avos until smooth. In a small skillet over medium heat, saute the shallots in the oil until tender and almost translucent but not browned. Sprinkle chili powder and set aside to cool. In a large bowl, whisk together avocado with stock and soy milk. Add shallot mixture and whisk until smooth. Stir in sea salt and pepper to taste, maybe some hot sauce. Chill for 45 minutes, garnish with tomato.
(I was totally drinking it out of the bowl. Seriously.)
i *love* avocados! I’m going to try this before the end of the week.
Have you tried avocado milkshakes? sooo good- I’ve only found them at Vietnamese restaurants though.
Mmmmm… I think I need to go eat an avocado now (I’ve been eating about one a day lately. The exercise has me STARVING ALL THE TIME).
Oh man what timing! I just bought three huge avacados yesterday at the grocery!
