Avocado Soup

Today, the day started with Icy Rain here in Dallas, usually I don't like rainy season that too this Icy Rain Yuck! Yuck! The Icy Rain was so harsh today that actually woke me up. As the road conditions are worse here, No school for Kids and I had to Work from Home. So I have decided to transform this Yucky weather to 'Hmmmm!  Yummy Soup' Moments. :-)

I always make thin soups, today I wanted to give a try to some thick soup. So I was browsing my 'Four Ingredient Cookbook' for some recipe and the first soup recipe won my heart with no doubt is this one as the main ingredient is Avocado and I have perfectly medium riped Avocados at home.

As the name says, in this wonderful cookbook every recipe is made of only 4 ingredients. As I have to work also, I thought this would me perfect to make simmering soup in minutes with as less ingredients as possible. When I saw 1 1/2 cup of Sour Cream in this recipe, I was going nuts. Hence made some alternations to the original recipe. As simple as that, here is version of this recipe in my works.

Even in this cold weather, superb shining Sun cooperated me for fabulous clicks. ;-)

Medium Riped Avocado - 2
Sour Cream  - 1/3 cup
Thick Butter Milk / Yogurt - 1 /2 cup
Veg/Chicken Broth - 4 cups ( 32 fl oz or 2 Lb Box)
Curry Powder -  1 tsp
Cilantro - 1 Tbsp
Black Pepper - 1 tsp
salt  - 1 tsp
lime juice - 1 Tbsp

  1. Cut the Avocado and seed out.
  2. Take a Soup pot and put it on the stove.
  3. Add 4 cups of Broth to the Hot and let it simmer on low
  4. Mean while Take the Yogurt in the food processor (have used magic bullet) or mixie or blender. Blend it on high for 1 min. Then Add the Avocado  and Lime Juice to it and Blend for 1 min. 
  5. Then Add the Sour cream at the end and blend it for 2 min or until it becomes like puree.
  6. Add this puree slowly in small amounts to the broth in the pot. Mix it thoroughly so that the puree does not form lumps. 
  7. Add the Salt, Black pepper and Curry Powder and let it simmer for  5 minutes.
  8. Make sure it does not reach to the boiling point and at the end add the chopped cilantro and turn off the heat.
  9. Ladle the soup into bowls and sprinkle the freshly ground black pepper (important for great taste) and serve hot with fried bread sticks.

Yum! Yum! Yum! Avocado Soup is ready. I am ready with my soup bowl.:-) Ooo! Laa! Laa!.

Serving Tip:
 When I am out of fried bread sticks or no time to make them fresh I use Croutons as  a good substitute.

  • Adjust the Curry powder and salt seasonings per your taste.
  • I have taken some soup out before adding the curry powder to serve for my little ones.
  • Yogurt, Lime Juice and Curry Powder are my alternations to the original recipe.
  • The soup color varies from light green to yellow based on how riped your avocados are.

I have used this from my cook book and today happens to be Tuesday, sending this to Priya's  Bookmarked Recipes - Every Tuesday event.

I am sending this soup to Divya's Show me Your Soup Event.

Happy Cooking until Next time
