Crema de Palta - Brazillian Avocado Soup

Last year when in Sao Paolo I was introduced to the lovely Crema de Palta which was a fabulous new way to enjoy the lovely avocado in this great recipe from  Elisabeth Luard..  You can turn this to a vegetarian dish just by using vegetable stock.

Crema de Palta - Brazillian Avocado Soup


2 ripe avocados (skinned, stoned and sliced)
600ml chicken stock
2 tablespoons lemon juice

To finish:
1 tablespoon diced cucumber
1 fresh green chilli, de seeded and sliced
A few fresh coriander leaves

Process the ingredients to a smooth puree.  If the mixture becomes too thick, slowly pour a little water until it thins out a little.  Salt lightly to taste.

Serve in a bowl with a few slices of cucumber, chilli and coriander as garnish.

Cocinar, comer y ser feliz.
