raw challenge - day 3 - kreamy avocado soup

Kreamy Avocado Soup by Ani Phyo

The first 3 days of my raw food challenge have proven to be both demanding and incredibly rewarding. I’ve certainly spent a great deal of time in the kitchen….. recipe testing, inventing, note taking, photographing and tasting. This avocado soup from Ani Phyo was part of tonight’s dinner. Tasty as it was, I found it quite rich. You may want to serve it as a starter, as opposed to a meal sized serving. I have altered a few of her quantities and ingredients to my liking.

Kreamy Avocado Soup

1 avocado, peeled and pitted
1 T miso paste
Sea salt to taste
Juice of 1 lime
1/4 t chipotle
2 T basil leaves, roughly chopped, plus more for garnish
1 3/4 cups water- plus more as needed
¼ c tomatoes, small dice (garnish)

Place all ingredients, except for the tomatoes, into the blender and whirl until creamy. While blender is running, pour water into the avocado mixture. Add more water, if needed. You are trying to achieve the same consistency as you would with a conventional cream soup. Taste and adjust seasoning. Ladle soup into 4 bowls. Garnish with diced tomatoes and a sprig of basil. Serves 4 as a starter.
