Basil-Avocado Soup

So, Brian Cochran decided to link the world of WSC blogs together, which was sort of interesting and nice, except that now people actually look at my blog, which makes me feel like I should post something. On second thought, maybe this is good.

So Sunny said she appreciates recipes. Here is an awesome recipe that I just tested on Mary Hawkins. It is a good summer soup. Not so great for today with all that rain... but still good.

2 c. carrot juice (if you don't have a juicer, just buy Odwalla or NakedJuice at Henry's)
1 lg or 2 small avocadoes, peeled and pitted
10 fresh basil leaves
1/2 tsp. ground coriander
juice of 1 lemon (1-2 Tbsp.)

Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth & creamy. I love this soup! If you like cold soups I think you will too! You can also make it thinner by using less avocado and make a lovely creamy orange salad dressing. I am thinking about playing with the seasonings of this and will let you know if I come up with anything else good.

Let me know if you try this and what you think! If you need an avocado, please contact me. :)

P.S. I cannot believe I haven't posted this recipe before. It is one of my favorites. I got into it when I was living in SF and being sort of vegan. Having a juicer in the house helped a lot...

LOL! I wasn't sure if I was going to put the few peoples blogs on the list that didn't respond to my e-mail, but I decided to anyway since blogs are public domain, and I figured if people wanted privacy they wouldn't have a blog in the first place. I didn't even know you had a blog until my wife showed me by clicking on your name in the comments section on my blog. Think on the bright side, I have increased your readership. Soon you'll be a famous chef. No pressure :)
