Green Monster Soup, Blizzard of Oz 2013

We had a little snow fall in our neighborhood this week so we decided it was time for more soup. Since I knew the snow was coming I stocked up on lots of yummy ingredients, including fixings for Green Monster Soup! The girls love making it and it tastes just like Guacamole Soup to me. I keep forgetting to make some tortilla strips for the top so I can really feel like I am eating guacamole.

With grilled cheese sammies on the side.
Green Monster Soup
  • 2 cups thinly sliced zucchini
  • 2 avocados
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 garlic cloves, diced
  • dash salt and pepper
Place garlic and two cups of broth in a pot, bring to a boil and  reduce. Simmer 10 minutes. Add zucchini and remaining broth, bring to a boil and reduce. Simmer 15 minutes. Place avocado flesh and soup in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.  Add salt and pepper and serve. We like ours with grilled cheese but feel free to enjoy yours with Quesadillas or plain tortillas.

She had to wear the hat.
Getting avocado flesh out is tough.
We got the idea for this amazing recipe from one of our favorite cookbooks, The Toddler Cafe. This cookbook is totally different and is worth every penny. There are not many of the usual suspects in this one.
