Chilled Avocado Soup With Guacamole Garnish

Prep Time 30 mins

Serves 4

A glamorous thick, spoonable soup which can
be served in large glass goblets

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe avocados (whole weight 1lb[450g])
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 285ml (1/2 pint) chicken stock, made
  • from one stock cube
  • 140ml (1/4 pint) single cream
  • 140ml (1/4 pint) soured cream


FOR THE GARNISH

  • a large tomato, peeled, seeded and diced
  • a small clove of garlic, crushed (optional)
  • 2 tbsp coriander leaves, chopped
  • a dash of Tabasco
  • a dash of Worcestershire sauce
  • four sprigs of coriander
  • sea salt and freshly milled pepper


Method

  1. Peel and stone the avocados and combine the flesh with the other ingredients (not including the garnish) in a blender.
  2. Whizz until smooth. Dilute with more stock or cream if too thick and season carefully - cold soups often need less seasoning than hot ones.
  3. Store the soup in a tall jug in the fridge, covered with a disc of paper which is touching its surface, until chilled.


For the garnish, mix the tomato dice lightly with the garlic (if using), coriander, Tabasco, Worcestershire sauce and a little salt. Pour the soup into large goblets or dainty bowls. Place some garnish on top of each portion and decorate with a coriander leaf.
