Not everyone is a fan of cold soup, but if you are, you probably appreciate the rich, creamy texture of most chilled summer soups. Next time you whip up a batch, try avocado.
As Epicurious explains, blended avocados are the perfect texture for creamy soup. They write:
Toss some avocado into your blender next time you’re making a batch of cold soup and it’ll not only pump up the nutritional value of your meal, it’ll make that soup silkier and thicker. Blended up with yogurt and topped with a fresh tomato salsa, this no-cook soup is 100% refreshing and 100% slurp-able.
It’s great as a vegan option, too. They say you’ll still get the same creamy texture with or without dairy. (Here’s a recipe with avocado, cilantro, and tomato, for example). If you like chilled, savory soups, it’s worth a try. Epicurious offers a few more versatile avocado suggestions, so head to the full post at the link below.
