Recipe adapted from Canal House Cooking, Volume No. 4 by Christopher Hirsheimer and Melissa Hamilton. This refreshing chilled soup (from their latest edition) combines rich avocados with crisp cucumbers. It's an ideal dinner for a hot summer night, as it requires no cooking and can be prepped in just a few minutes. Cooking time is chilling time.
- Slice the avocados in half lengthwise, working around the pit. Twist to separate the halves. Remove the pit and use a spoon to scoop out the flesh.
- Add the avocados, cucumber, garlic, lemon juice and chicken stock to a blender and puree until smooth, working in batches if necessary. Season with salt and refrigerate until the soup is well chilled.
- Divide the soup among four chilled bowls. Garnish with a dollop of sour cream and a dash of hot pepper sauce and serve.
