Gerry, how to add avocados - cut or blend?

Neville in the original recipe does not say exactly how to add avocados. I think blending will be better, but cut will get interesting, especially if you love avocado.

soup became just great, thanks for the recipe :) It was decided that I would strain it and it turned out that my little green avocados - so cut it into cubes, put it a few minutes before unplugging. Served with cheese, cream and extra spicy - whatever you want to put. I received 4 large soup bowls.

Nevi, very glad that you liked the soup. Me I was also very tasty.

It was very colorful with avocado, sorry, I have no pictures - hungry people what to do :)

No, next time I might try it with avocado.
