      Title: Cold avocado and buttermilk soup
 Categories: Soups
      Yield: 6 servings
 
    1/3 c  Coarsely chopped sweet
           -onion, such as Vidalia
  2 1/2 c  Cold chicken broth, all fat
           -removed
      3    Thoroughly ripe avocados
  1 1/2 c  Buttermilk
      1    Drop almond extract
           -(optional)
      1 pn Of sugar (optional)
           Salt to taste
      2    Jalapeno peppers, seeds and
           -veins removed, diced
      3    To 5 tablespoons minced
           -cilantro
 
  Crisp tortilla chips to accompany
  
  Place the onions in a blender or processor and add 1 cup of the Puree
  as fine as possible. Peel and chunk in 2 1/2 of the avocados,
  reserving the remaining half for garnish. Puree again, adding broth
  as necessary.
  
  Transfer the soup to a large bowl. Add any remaining broth the
  buttermilk to the blender and whir briefly to pick as much avocado as
  possible. Add to the soup, along with the extract and sugar, if
  desired. Both of these rather surprising ingredients enhance avocado
  when used in tiny amounts. Stir well, taste and adjust the salt. The
  soup may be made to this in advance and refrigerated several hours,
  but for best flavor allow it to warm up a bit before serving. It
  should be cold but not icy.
  
  Peel the remaining half avocado cut into very thin slices. Divide
  soup-among six serving bowls and top with the sliced avocado, and
  coriander. Serve accompanied by the tortilla chips.
