Simple and elegant. I found this on one of my Mother's recipe cards. I'm not sure if she made it up or found it in a cookbook.

This soup is very fresh and light; easy to put together. I used home made broth and port (did not have Sherry). Next time I might add a bit of broth to the avocados and lemons and let sit for a bit before adding the remaining broth to the bowls. The lemony flavour came through better at the end of the bowl.

This recipe couldn't have been easier. It tasted fresh and light, but also much more complex and flavorful than ordinary broth. This would make an excellent first course for a heavy meal. I made this keeper recipe for photo tag.
