Cold Avocado-Soup – Mexican Style
(Avocadoes originated in Mexico and Central America and date back to 8000 B.C. Until the 20th Century, Aztecs believed avocadoes were a sexual stimulant and anyone concerned about their reputation did not eat them.)
2 tbsps finely chopped cilantro leaves
1 Serrano chili, seeded and minced
2-cups fresh orange juice (corrected recipe)
1/2 tsp. grated orange zest
2 cups chicken broth
2 mashed avocados
1-cup cold milk
Salt, white pepper to taste
Process first three ingredients (using only 1/4 cup of the orange juice) in blender until smooth. Add remaining ingredients and process until smooth. Chill for 2 hours. Serve with chopped peeled watermelon on top.
Quickie Chickie Vegetable Soup
(This is simple way to make a delicious tasting soup for a cold evening. It is especially handy if there is left over chicken in the refrigerator. I confess that I had a Costco leftover chicken and decided to boil the carcass with a mirepoix of vegetables. Voila!... In less than an hour I had strained and degreased the stock and quickly prepared the soup. It tasted like I had spent several days preparing this marvelous concoction. My girlfriend, Marilyn Post, tasted it and now makes it regularly for her friends and family.)
4 carrots, sliced
1 lg. onion, diced
2 or 3 leeks, diced
4 stalks of celery, sliced
3 zucchini, diced
2 tbsp. butter
2 tbsps. olive oil
1 tsp. herbs de Provence varied amounts of dried marjoram, thyme, savory, basil, rosemary, fennel seed
Thyme, fresh, 3 or 4 sprigs
Salt & pepper to taste
10 cups of Quickie Chickie Broth
2 cups of diced chicken
4 cups of cooked penne pasta
Sauté the vegetables in the butter and olive oil and salt & pepper to taste along with the herbs while the vegetables are cooking. When the vegetables get a nice glaze and are partially done, add broth and cook for 20 to 30 minutes. Add pasta or any left over rice and serve.
Quickie Chickie Chicken Broth
1 leftover roasted chicken from Costco
Remove chicken from carcass and dice.
Place chicken bones in a pot and cover with a large can of chicken broth and 1 cup of water
Add 1 carrot, ½ onion, 2 stalks celery, chopped
Add 1 bay leaf, 1 tsp. herbs de Provence and salt & pepper to taste.
Cook for 30 minutes and strain, removing any fat.
