Avocado soup recipe

The first time I heard about avocado in a soup, I was a bit hesitant. I mean; we all know that avocado tends to brown really quickly and while I love the creamy texture of ripe avocados I wasn’t all too sure if it would turn out ok. For making this cream of avocado soup you do need – preferably a high speed blender but a food processor will do as well. It might be somewhat less smooth. While this is essentially one of my favorite cold soups, you can actually eat it slightly warm.

If you prefer your soup to be warm or at least not too cold you can heat it, but make sure to not let it boil! 

Making the avocado soup

Now for making the soup you obviously need avocado’s. I used two fresh avocados. Which type largely depends on the region you’re living in. You can use california avocados, hass avocados (or haas avocados) and probably all other types that are out there.

Making the soup could not be easier. You simply add all the ingredients to the blender (except the toppings of course) and blend it to a lovely smooth consistency. I use water here to make the soup thinner but you can also use chicken broth or vegetable broth which will give it a bit more flavor. A little squeeze of lime juice will also be delicious to add.

I added some raw green peas to the soup as well but you can also use cucumber if you want. In fact cucumber avocado soup is also quite delicious. Making it even fresher.

For the toppings I used smoked salmon, fresh cilantro, hemp seeds and some almond shavings. Now this is easy to adjust to your liking. You can even make this a vegan avocado soup by removing the smoked salmon all together. You could replace the salmon with some baked tempeh if you want.

​While you can serve the soup cold I like to use it at room temperature. 

Do make sure to eat the avocado soup right away. I haven’t tried saving it but I would imagine the color of the avocado will eventually brown. So just make it and eat it straight away.

Additions and variations

Like I said you can definitely add cucumber to the soup, but you can also add different kind of toppings to this avocado gazpacho. I love the salty touch of the smoked salmon but you can use some green onions on top too. A bit of sour cream and a splash of olive oil will also work really well.
