Tried and Tasted Tasty Palettes : Chilled Avocado Soup


The creamy Chilled Avocado soup ,courtesy of Suganya of Tasty Palettes ,has a decent amount of Mono saturated(AKA good kind of fat) in every ounce.Suganya describes this as "darn addictive ",undoubtedly this velvety soup in now in my treasured list of Avocado recipes.

Ingredients
2 Ripe Avocados,Peeled and cubed.(see how to to cut them)
1/2 a medium onion,chopped
1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 big clove Garlic,finely chopped
1/2 cup Broccoli ,finely chopped. Or use Frozen fava beans or peas
2 small green chili,seeded and chopped
1/4 cup Cilantro\Coriander ,finely chopped
3/4 cup fat free Plain yogurt
1 tablespoon Extra virgin Olive oil
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 black pepper,freshly ground
1/2 a cup water,little more for thinner soup.
1 tablespoon lemon\lime juice,freshly squeezed

Method
Heat the oil on medium heat,add the cumin seeds and onion saute for a minute until translucent then add the garlic saute until aromatic ,about 30 seconds.Add the veggies season with salt and pepper,cover and cook on low heat until tender about 5 minutes.Turn the heat off,let cool about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile peel and chop avocados,squeeze the lime juice over to prevent oxidation.When Veggie mixture is cool,stir in the yogurt,avocados and cilantro,blend until smooth along water.Let the soup cool in the refrigerator for half an hour,then serve cold with toasted bread or crackers.

This enjoyable soup has been Tried and Tasted ,for a food event started by Zu of Zlamuska's Spicy Kitchen.Hosting this month is Sweatha of Tasty Curry Leaf for awe inspiring Suganya's Tasty palettes blog.

i cant quite get used to the idea of a chilled soup - i guess i would make it thicker and call it a dip
