Avocado Soup

Avocado Soup
(4 servings)


2 large ripe Avocados
1¼ cups Crème Fraiche
4 cups Chicken Stock
1 tsp. Salt
1 medium Fresh Lime, juice only half of it
1 small bunch Fresh Cilantro, chopped
½ tsp. Fresh Ground Black Pepper


Cut the avocados in half and remove pits.  Scoop out pulp with a spoon and place in a food processor.  Add 4 tbsp. of crème fraiche and process until smooth.  In a large sauce pan over medium heat, warm chicken stock until hot but not bubbling.  Stir in the remaining crème fraiche and salt.  Add the lime juice to the avocado mixture and process briefly to mix.  Then gradually stir into the stock mixture.  Heat gently and do not let mixture approach boiling.  Pour soup into bowls and top with the chopped cilantro and pepper.  Serve immediately.

Note:               Because this soup contains avocados, it may discolor if left to stand.  So make it just before serving.

Note:               For an added left, use a little more lime juice just before putting into bowls.
