Soup of the week: Mystery Soup

This is a delicately flavoured soup. Thanks to the avocado it has a creamy texture. It is equally delicious hot or cold. No dilly-dallying today and on with the recipe. To prepare this soup you will need the following:


  • 450g/1lb leeks
  • 1.2l/2pints chicken stock or straight water
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 large ripe avocado
  • 150ml single cream
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • Handful of fresh chopped parsley
  • Salt and cayenne pepper

  • Method:
    Place the bouillon in the saucepan or crumble the stock cubes until it boils.
    Add the cleaned and roughly chopped leeks
    Simmer for 10 minutes
    Use this time to cut, peel, stone the avocado then mash it with the lemon, use a fork or the food-processor, reserve.
    Now pulse the leeks with as much bouillon as you wish in the liquidiser.
    Return to pan and add avocado mixture. Season. Simmer for a minute
    Serve with chopped parsley.

    Happy winter days.
