Avocado Soup Hot

Hot Avocado Soup

Avocados were on sale at the grocery this week. There were two loaded bins with hundreds of not-quite-ripe avocados marked at 77 cents each, so I grabbed four with plans to use two of them for a Hot Avocado Soup Recipe. The majority of avocado soup recipes suggest serving the dish very cold, and the soup is undeniably delicious and refreshing when served in that manner. But in northern Wisconsin in January, my mind is on hot soups – anything to take the chill off – so I researched dozens of recipes to come up with what I believe is the Best Hot Avocado Soup. It is rich and creamy but also extremely fresh tasting, thanks to the tangy flavors of lime juice and cilantro. Make sure you use perfectly ripe avocados, with bright greenish-yellow flesh and no mushy or dark spots. With a pair of perfect avocados, there’s little more to making this soup than blending some ingredients together and whisking them into hot broth.

    Great soup! I was a little skeptical as to whether it would taste as fresh as a the chilled version but the refreshing flavor still came through 🙂
