Our New Favorite Thing to Make With Avocado

This chilled soup is your next summer staple

Avocado Soup

Chilled Avocado Soup
As ethereal as its origins, this unusual, chilled summer soup is a specialty at the Singular Patagonia, an otherworldly hotel that borders Sena Última Esperanza (or Last Hope Sound). It's made velvety and rich by the local avocados, which are called paltas. Get the recipe for Avocado Soup »William Hereford

There's nothing as comforting as a good bowl of soup, but when it’s 80 degrees outside, spending time over a hot stove may be the furthest thing from your mind.

But don't give up on that comfort just because it's summer. Embrace the cold soup, especially this one made from a base of avocado, sparkling water, olive oil, and ice. It's cool and refreshing, satisfying but light, and gives you the purest possible expression of the fruit's buttery flavor. Add some texture on top with cubed avocado, chunks of bread, torn basil, and thinly sliced radishes, or whatever else is in your fridge.

This recipe comes from the land of giants, Patagonia, where their the Singular Hotel use their own paltas in lieu of Hass avocados. Try it with some crazy-good crab dip, and wash it down with a springy pisco cocktail.
