Avocado Cold Soup



Soup season is open! The colder it gets outside (ahh, I love that crisp air) the more we feel the need for that homemade soup. Yeah homemade! Those out of the bag soups are pfff, just yuck! Soup stimulates appetite, it's a lunch starter, the only meal that you can get down your throat a day after hard partying, it's like a balm for the sore throat when you have a cold and that support that lifts your spirit in the cold, autumn / winter evenings. Mmmm ... that warms you up, right? Well, stop getting warm, because this recipe is for a cold soup =). At least I prepared it cold, but you can prepare it hot.

With love, Neja

The recipe


Ingredients
coconut butter
olive oil
1 small onion
2 cloves garlic
1/2 inch fresh ginger, minced
1 lime, juice
10 mint leaves
3 medium size avocados (ripe, very soft)
1 cup water
salt & pepper
The process
Mint olive oil:  Stomp mint leaves in a mortar, add 3 tbsp olive oil. Let it sit for a while before dripping it over the soup.

Soup: Add coconut butter to a pan on medium heat. Sauté onion, garlic, ginger and chili until soft. Place in a blender together with the rest of the ingredients. Pulse it and taste, add more salt and water if needed. Pour it into a pot and heat it before serving or eat it cold. Top with a couple of drips of the Mint olive oil.


Sezona juh je odprta! Bolj ko je zunaj mrzlo in zrak svež, bolj nam paše domača juhica. Ja domača!!! Tiste iz vrečke so pfff, zanič! Juha spodbudi apetit, je uvod v kosilo, edina jed, ki jo spraviš po grlu dan po žuranju, balzam za grlo ob prehladu in podpora, ki ti dvigne duha ob mrzlih, jesenskih/zimskih večerih. Mmmm...vas kar pogreje, huh? No, nehajte se segrevati, tale recept je za hladno juho =). Vsaj jaz sem jo pripravila hladno, lahko jo pa pripravite toplo.

Z ljubeznijo, Neja


Recept


Sestavine
kokosovo maslo
oljčno olje
1 majhna čebula
2 stroka česna
1/2 cm svežega ingverja, sesekljanega
1 limeta, sok
10 listov mete
3 avokadi (zreli, zelo mehki)
1 skodelica vode
sol in poper
Postopek
Metino oljčno olje: V možnarju strite liste mete, dodajte 3 žlice olivnega olja. Pustite, da počiva za nekaj časa, preden ga pokapate čez juho.

Juha: V ponvi na srednje močnem ognju segrejte kokosovo maslo. Prepražimo čebulo, česen, ingver do mehkega. Dajte v mešalnik skupaj z ostalimi sestavinami. Zmiksajte, dodajte več soli in vode, če je potrebno. Vsebino zlijte v lonec in jo segrejte, lahko pa jo uživate hladno. Pred serviranjem pokapajte s pripravljenim metinim oljem.
