Chilled Avocado Soup (Gluten-Free)


The finished chilled avocado soup. CC-Jason_Hutchens

Avocado is one of my all time favorite things to eat. Many people don't realize that the avocado, like the tomato is a fruit. Maybe that explains why summer is the very best time get fresh, California avocados. In addition to eating avocado as guacamole, or as a side with burgers, salads, and the like, I am always on the lookout for a new way to enjoy one of my favorite summertime treats. This version of chilled avocado soup uses avocado, chicken broth, cream, and coriander to create a rich, creamy soup that is served chilled, and which makes for a perfect dish for dinner on a warm summer evening.

Ingredients:
3 Hass avocados, peeled and pitted
1 tomato, peeled, seeded and diced
1 tablespoon shallots, chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups chicken stock
1 cup heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste
¼ teaspoon ground coriander, to taste
½ cup chopped cilantro, as garnish
½ cup Cotija cheese, crumbled as garnish
4 limes, sliced

Directions:
Pureé 2 avocados in a blender or food processor until smooth. Reserve 1 avocado, sliced.
