Yesterday at the co-op a tray of very ripe avocados arrived - unfortunately more ripe than we'd been expecting - however Gini, one of our many wonderful, creative, full-of-information members, came to the rescue and immediately wrote out a recipe on the spot which we'd like to share with you.
It's for Avocado Soup: apparently to be served cold but we think it could be warmed, for these crisp Winter days and nights....
No quantities given so add a cup of stock and keep adding until you reach the desired consistency, depending of course on how many avocados you have.
A good chicken stock (this is important) or equally good quality vegetable stock.
Heat the two together and cool in Summer or if desired.
Serve in a bowl with a dot of sour cream and some cut chives.
Thank you, Gini! Some more of these avocados will be available at Wyong this afternoon...
Avocados are absolutely delicious in a smoothie which I only just discovered recently. I've been making green smoothies with just about any type of leafy green I had to hand, but a few short weeks ago tried them with avocado - YUMMO!
See you at the co-op...
