- Dice the leek and celeriac. Fry with shallot, bay leaf and rice in the oil. Add wine according to taste and leave to cook out. Add vegetable bouillon, bring to the boil and leave to simmer for 40 minutes with lid on.
- Remove bay leaf. Halve the avocado, rub halves together to remove stone. Peel flesh off the fruit, chop and add. Puree the soup finely, pass through a sieve, stir in mascarpone. Season to taste and leave to cool.
The alcohol evaporates almost completely during cooking. Do not cook once avocado has been added otherwise it will destroy the vital substances and make the soup taste bitter. The soup can also be served lukewarm. Alfred Vogel extolled the virtues of the avocado. The exotic ‘butter fruit’ is undeniably rich in vitamins and minerals, contains a great deal of lecithin and a high percentage of unsaturated fatty acids.
