Sopa de Aguacate

Had some avocados that needed to be eaten now, so, an unseasonable-but-delicious chilled avocado soup.


  • 1 bunch green onions 
  • 3 large ripe avocados
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large lemon, juiced
  • 1/4 tsp. cumin
  • 1/4 tsp/ paprika
  • 2 c. vegetable broth
  • 1 small handful parsley
  • 2 c. ice water
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Coarsely chop white segment of onions and place in blender or food processor
  2. Add flesh of one avocado, garlic, and lemon juice; purée 
  3. Add flesh of second avocado; purée
  4. Add third avocado, cumin and paprika; purée until smooth
  5. Add parsley and slowly add vegetable broth; blend until smooth
  6. Add salt and pepper to taste and refrigerate overnight 
  7. Just before serving, stir in iced water to thin purée

A few questions: why not make guacamole when you have urgent avocados??
More seriously: is the broth cold or warm? Because cooked avocado is gross. Trust me on that one.

1) Already have way too much guac - had to freeze some

2) Cold, of course
