Another deliciously simple meal for when you need some time back… 

The avocado provides a great boost of the B-vitamins and fibre while offering a smooth creaminess. One cup is all you’ll need to stay warm and toasty this winter.

Serves 4-6

5 minutes prep
10 minutes cook time


2 PurpleSkin® or GreenSkin® Avocados
1 Brown Onion, diced
2 Garlic cloves, minced
1 ½ tablespoon Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
1 tablespoon All Spice
1 teaspoon Smoked Paprika
1 Bay Leaf
1L Chicken Stock (Vege stock if you prefer)
1 cup Creme Fraiche (or sour cream)
8 Basil leaves
Lemon Juice to taste
6 Pancetta slices (optional)


  1. Using ½ tablespoon of oil, cook the garlic and onion until golden, stir in the All Spice and Smoked Paprika and place into blender.
  2. If using Pancetta, cook off in the same pan and set aside.
  3. Add the remainder of the oil, PurpleSkin® or GreenSkin® Avocados, coriander, and half of the chicken stock to the onions and garlic in the blender.  Blend until smooth.
  4. Heat the remainder of the stock to a simmer then add to the blender. Blend briefly to ensure consistency then return to saucepan.
  5. Add Bay Leaf and simmer for 5 minutes.
  6. Stir in Lemon Juice to taste.

Serve with Crème Fraiche, Pancetta, and a sprig of Basil.
