Avocado soup

Avocado soup

Mamta Gupta

This is a quick summer soup for people who like avocado pears. Here I have given only one combination of main ingredients. Experiment with other herbs (mint alone, basil), green chillies, a handful of frozen peas etc. Serves 2


  • Fort soup

  • 1 ripe (give slightly when pressed) avocado pear, peeled and roughly chopped

  • 1/2 red onion of medium size, finely chopped, about 2 tbs.

  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed

  • 500 ml. or ½ pint vegetable stock or 2 bullion cubes dissolved in hot water (chill it before use.

  • 2 small tomatoes or 2 tbs. tomato puree. Fresh tomatoes are best

  • 3 tbs. thick yoghurt or dour cream. I use yoghurt

  • 1/4 tsp. Tabasco hot sauce (optional)

  • 1 tsp. lemon/lime juice

  • 1 tbs. chopped coriander leaves

  • 1 tbs. extra virgin olive oil

  • A few sprigs of coriander leaves

  • For Garnish

  • 1 tbs. chopped coriander leaves

  • 1 tbs. chopped mint leaves

  • 1 tbs. chopped onion (optional), dressed with 1 tsp. lemon juice.

  • Freshly ground salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 tsp. Worcester sauce (optional)


  1. Place everything for soup in a blender and process until smooth. Chill for an hour.

  2. Serve with a garnish of finely chopped coriander/mint leaves and a little of very finely chopped onions. I prefer mine without onion garnish.

  3. Also see Soup Selection.


  • If not adding Tabasco sauce to soup, serve it alongside for anyone who wants it.

  • It can also be served hot but it is much nicer chilled.
