    Chilled Avocado and Tomato Soup (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    For the purposes of this recipe, it is important to remember that the avocado and the tomato are both fruits. A curious fact to some, simple knowledge for many. Hot summer days mean a steady of flow of delicious tomatoes and luscious avocados. Finding new ways to use both can make for a delightful culinary adventure. One way that's old hat to many gourmets, but new to me, is to turn them into a delicious, refreshing chilled soup. The result is nothing short of an homage to the marriage of two of summer's most storied fruits.

    3 large Hass avocados - peeled and pitted
    2 ripe heirloom tomatoes, peeled
    1 small sweet onion, quartered
    1 green bell pepper, de-seeded
    ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
    4 cups tomato juice
    1½ cups plain yogurt
    ⅓ cup chopped fresh chives
    Pinch of chopped cilantro (optional)
    3 limes, wedged
    salt and pepper to taste


    Directions:
    Place tomatoes, avocados, onion, bell pepper, and lemon juice into a blender or food processor, and mix until smooth. Pour in 1 cup tomato juice, and blend well.

    Transfer mixture to a large bowl, and mix in remaining tomato juice and 1 cup yogurt. Season to taste with salt.

    Chill well. Serve cold in bowls with lime slices on the side. Garnish with a splash of yogurt, chives, and cilantro as desired. Add pepper to taste.
