Ingredients
  • 3 large, ripe avocados, peeled, pitted and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup minced scallions
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro, plus 6 sprigs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Directions

In batches in a food processor, puree the avocados, chicken stock, scallions, lemon juice, cilantro, 1 teaspoon of the salt, and the cayenne. Pour into a soup tureen or large pitcher and stir in the heavy cream just before serving. In a small skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the corn kernels, cumin, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, and cook until fragrant and golden brown, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and garnish each serving of soup with 2 tablespoons of the toasted corn and 1 sprig of cilantro.
