Avocado and Green Chilli Soup

From: Linda McCartney’s Home Cooking, p. 51

A creamy cold soup made of avocado and milk, flavooured with sherry.

This is a very special and smooth soup that is great for summer parties. I would recommend using fresh chillies instead of tinned. The sherry I used had a slightly bitter taste, which I did not like in the soup. Maybe I have to try with a better sherry next time or omit it.

Guacamole

From: Linda McCartney´s Home Cooking, p. 64

This guacamole is really addictive and combines fresh avocado with the slightly sour flavour of tinned chillies. It is great to accompany mexican food such as tacos or fajitas, and also makes an excellent dip for crudités.

Variations: For a change, try using some finely chopped fresh chillies instead of the tinned ones (to taste) and adding 2 tablespoons of yogurt (or soy yogurt) for a fresher taste.
