Sweet and Tangy Tomatillo Soup
This is very refreshing and delicious. I use basil in this soup, and would suggest sticking with that (don’t substitute with cilantro here).
2 c. chopped tomatillos
½ avocado, peeled and chopped
1 Tbsp. lime juice
½ tsp. honey
1 Tbsp. white wine or mild vinegar
Pinch of garlic salt
1 Tbsp. snipped fresh basil
Salt to your taste
Chicken or vegetable broth
Briefly puree all of the ingredients together in a blender or food processor, leaving some chunks.
Taste and adjust seasoning/ingredients as you wish (a little more honey, lime, etc. –advice from the voice of experience: make note of any changes!)
Add broth, ¼ c. at a time, short-pulse blending as you go, to bring soup to your desired consistency. We like to leave it just a little chunky.
