Sometimes we serve this soup in small bowls as a little starter, simply adding a few chives and thinly sliced radishes on top, and serve it with a couple of Parmesan breadsticks. Other times we add a spoonful of lightly whipped cream and some sesame salt, or a few small chanterelles sautéed in butter. Or a little whitefish roe with crème fraîche and prawns is another great topping.

In other words, there are many ways to serve this easy-to-make soup, which should be prepared no more than one hour in advance and served lukewarm.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
150ml pure cream
1 litre chicken or vegetable stock
3 large ripe avocados
1 teaspoon sea salt, or to taste
freshly ground white or black pepper
a small pinch herbamare or other herb salt, (optional)
a handful chives, snipped

Accompaniments

Quantity Ingredient
300g cooked prawns, unpeeled
or 150ml see method for ingredients
or 20 radishes
or 100g small chanterelles

Method

  1. To prepare the accompaniments, peel the prawns and combine the crème fraîche with the roe, then cover and place in the fridge. Thinly slice the radishes. Trim and clean the chanterelles (just before serving, quickly fry them in a knob of butter).
  2. To make the soup, lightly whip the cream, then set aside. Heat the stock in a saucepan, let it simmer for a few minutes and then set aside. Cut the avocados in half, remove the stones, then cut the flesh into chunks. Mix the avocado flesh until smooth using a hand-held stick blender or a food processor. Add the stock, a little at a time, to the mashed avocado. Stir and season the soup with salt and pepper, and some herb salt if you like. Gently fold in the whipped cream.
  3. Serve the soup sprinkled with chives, and with the accompaniments of your choice.
