The avocado, with its sensuous shape and texture, has been regarded as an aphrodisiac for centuries.
Now we also know that avocados are rich in beta-sitosterol which helps lower “bad” cholesterol levels.
This creamy, delicious soup is quick to make, and good for the heart in every way! Green chilies, lemon juice, fresh parsley, and a hint of sherry make it a lovely beginning to a romantic meal.
2 ripe avocados
1 1/2 cups plain soy milk, warmed to room temperature
1 4-ounce can or jar green chilies
1 medium onion, chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
2 teaspoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons dry sherry
Chopped chilies or fresh parsley to garnish
1. Cut the avocados in half and remove the pits. Spoon the avocado into a blender and puree. Add remaining ingredients (except garnish) and puree until creamy. Garnish and serve immediately.
Serves 4 to 6.
