avocado - peeled, pitted and diced
salt and pepper to taste
tomato - peeled, seeded and diced
In the middle of an oppressively hot, humid Chicago summer, my wife and I chilled this soup in the fridge for five hours before serving under the shade of our oak tree in the backyard, and luxuriated in the taste, the texture and the coolness.
A perfect Sunday afternoon lunch. Note: You cannot chill this soup too much.
Be sure to add the tomato for garnish and color contrast. And a glass of very chilled pinot grigio wine.
A No. 10 all around.
A good basic recipe but needed a little bit of "oomph". I looked at the avocado and cilantro soup recipe and added some of the elements of that recipe (dash of Mexican hot sauce, lime juice). I also blended everything together and added extra cilantro at the end, when I put it in for chilling.
My guest said it was the best avocado Soup she had ever had. She thought they were usually quite bland but this one was delicious!!
Has to be eaten in small amounts at a time. Better as a side dish than a main course.
This is my 3rd time making the soup,first time very good, 2nd time,not so good,this time good just not out of the ballpark. This recipe is good but I think it's needs some extra spice, after I ate half a bowl, I added some cayenne pepper, no,didn't taste right so to my next bowl I added garlic powder and cumin, what do you know a hit! Everybody needs to try their own taste so try.
I was so looking forward to this I made it in the winter months and was pleased. No changes made on a good blend of flavor.
I love avocados but this just wasn't what I thought it would be, I really didn't like this at all.
It lived up to it's name as avocado soup but was very rich and very filling. I was quite skeptical of a cold soup but it turned out alright. For being a "summer soup" it was a little too heavy.
