Chilled Avocado Soup with Shrimp or Rotisserie Chicken

Avocado soup with shrimp in a cocktail glass.


12 medium cocktail shrimp or 1 store-bought rotisserie chicken

3 scallions, cleaned

2 large, ripe avocados

1 cup low-fat Greek yogurt

1 clove garlic, peeled

2 cups vegetable stock, chilled

1 lime, juiced


If using chicken, remove both of the breasts and cut each on the bias into thin strips. Save the rest of the rotisserie chicken for other no-heat meals.

Trim the root end of the scallions and cut the green away from the white. Chop the green and reserve for garnish.

Place the avocados, yogurt, garlic, white part of scallion, 1 1/2 cups of vegetable stock and lime juice in a blender or food processor. Process until smooth, using the remaining vegetable stock to adjust the consistency.

Divide the soup into 4 small bowls. Garnish with the sliced chicken – or 3 shrimp – and chopped scallions.
