Hello all! Work has been quite busy these past few weeks – I keep telling them, this is what happens when you put multiple shows into production in September, but they never listen to little ol’ me! As a result, of course, I am sadly behind on my posting. But here I am!
The Boy and I are still trying to be relatively healthy with our cooking, mostly because our favorite word is “brunch” and rarely does a weekend go buy without us being forced (ha!) to go out and try the new restaurants that are constantly opening in L.A. (on that note, we have some plans to start a restaurant review blog, so keep an eye out…).
So, basically, when we’re not eating out, we try to be healthy. And everything that’s green is healthy, right? Hence, this somewhat unusual recipe: Avocado Soup.
|And to start things off…bacon!|
Ok, ok. I know you’re not buying it. Healthy, she told me? But that is clearly bacon! Even the caption says so!
Yes, yes, I know what you’re thinking. But I promise, the rest of this isn’t NEARLY so bad. I think. Let me know if I’m fooling myself. (Or actually, maybe don’t).
Anyway, you’ve got cooked and crumbled bacon, and then you also cook some chopped onions:
|Onions cooking! You can cook in the bacon grease, too!|
Then some jalapeno and corn go into the onions to cook just a bit more…
|Veggies a’ cookin’!|
And then you pile everything (including the bacon) into bowls. Artfully. Or something.
By now you’re probably thinking I’ve lied twice. That’s no soup! You’re saying. That’s like weird fancy salsa! Where’s the liquid? Where’s the avocado?
Well, the avocado’s coming, but of course I got all excited while I was cooking this and forgot to take pictures of that part. What can I say, I’m not always the most professional of food bloggers. But that’s why you love me, right? Anyway, earlier and unpictured, avocados went into a blender (or food processor, in my case) with vegetable broth, sour cream, lime juice, salt and water (pretend you didn’t see sour cream. Green = healthy. Yes.).
You then pour that soup, chilled, over the warm mess of “topping” (bottoming?) you just made.
And then you eat it all up. Ok, so maybe guacamole soup isn’t THE healthiest thing in the world. But it’s good, it’s not the worst for you, and it’s green! Right? Green.
