Avocado Soup


  • 4 ripe avocados
  • 2 cups sparkling water
  • 1 tbsp. chopped shallot
  • 3 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 cup crushed ice
  • 1/2 tsp. Merken chile powder (or ancho)
  • fried shallots for garnish (optional)


Cut and remove the flesh of the avocados. Place all but 1/2 an avocado into a blender. Cut the remaining half into chunks to use for garnish. Add the sparkling water, chopped shallot, olive oil, salt, pepper, cilantro, and crushed ice to the blender, and blend until smooth. Pour into 4 bowls and garnish with avocado chunks, fried shallots (if using), and Merken. Serve quickly since oxidation will cause green color to fade.
