(When avocados are in season).
Add the mashed avocados to warm consomme and blend thoroughly. Cook slowly, stirring constantly until the soup comes to a boil. Remove from the fire immediately and pour over the cubed avocado in the soup bowls. Put a dollop of lightly salted whipped cream or a little evaporated milk on top of the soup. This recipe serves two or three.
