Food Friday on Empty Streets: Avocado and Shrimp Soup

Posted 9:44 AM by Mezhal Ulao in Labels: , ,
I have a cool summer soup recipe that I would love you guys to try. It is both tasty and easy to make and it uses two of my favorite ingredients - Avocado and Shrimp.

Ingredients:
1 small onion, diced
4 cups chicken broth
4 sprigs parsley
1/8 cup chopped chives
2 medium avocados, peeled, seeded, roughly chopped
1/2 cup cooked small shrimp, shelled, deveined
2 stalks celery, chopped fine
1 bay leaf
1 cup sour cream
salt/pepper to taste

Procedure:
Place onion, celery, broth, bay leaf, parsley, salt & pepper in a large saucepan. Simmer for 15 minutes. Strain and reserve stock. Place avocados in blender or food processor; puree avocados while slowly adding stock. When mixture is smooth, return to saucepan and heat gently; add shrimp. Cook over low heat until heated thoroughly, do not boil. Serve with a dollop of sour cream atop each serving, and sprinkle with chopped chives.

And for those that would want to see a video demonstration of how this delish dish is prepared here is a video from NYTimes.com:
