Seven soups every Saturday: avocado soup recipes

Avocado cucumber soup

Avocados don't grow on trees here in Rhode Island, so rather than being seasonal fruits, they're a year-round-but-from-somewhere-else food. In the winter, I usually dice them for salads. In summer, I make soup, and I hope you do, too. Choose Hass avocados, the flavorful ones with black pebbly skin. To find a ripe one, press on the outside ever so slightly. If there's no give, it's underripe. If you can make a defined dent, it's overripe. You can ripen avocados on the counter top, and hold them at their peak in the refrigerator for up to one week.

Seven avocado soup recipes caught my eye this week:

Crockpot creamy avocado chipotle soup, from A Year of Slow Cooking

Chilled avocado cucumber soup, from In Good Taste

Chilled avocado soup, from One Perfect Bite

Broccoli cauliflower avocado soup, from Family Fresh Cooking

Rutabaga and avocado soup, from La Tartine Gourmande

Edamame avocado soup, from Tofu for Two

Quinoa soup with avocado and corn, from I Want to Go There

I haven't made soup with avocados, but I do love the idea of it! I think this is the summer I need to finally try it and these look great.

Thanks for mentioning my soup. I really want to try Stephanie's chipotle version. I love anything with chipotle!
