I chose this recipe because I am committed to low carb and it's hard to find soup recipes. I love avocados, so this fit the bill. I liked that the recipe was well written and easy to follow, as well as the fact that it's a simple thing to put together. I used my own home-made chicken broth. I thought the finished product was good but not super. I felt it was missing something. I think I would use additional scallions and maybe a little garlic next time. Thanks for the recipe, Mariposa.
