Avocados a.k.a. avocado pears are used for making soups, salads, and desserts. One of the biggest food surprises I experienced in Africa involved avocados. I visited a family as they were sitting down to a large bowl of mashed avocado. I was eager to join them as it was the first avocados of the

season. When I took my first big spoonful my taste buds were shocked by the taste of sugar. They had mashed the avocados with sugar and were eating it as a dessert. I was expecting something completely different.

Juice of 1 lemon


1 tsp curry powder

Mash together the avocado flesh, lemon juice, cream and curry powder. Season to taste. Blend with the stock and bring to a boil. Pour into bowls and garnish with paprika.
