Creamy Avocado Corn Soup Warms Up the Meal on a Cold Rainy Day

Updated on November 9, 2013
Creamy Avocado Corn Soup
Creamy Avocado Corn Soup

When you crave something creamy and warm, think soup!

For a perfectly warming and soothing

dinner on the first rainy day of Autumn I decided to literally whip up a meal in a matter of minutes. Since the three avocados waiting for me on the kitchen counter ripened before I was ready for them, I ran out for the best organic guacamole at the food co-op.

My busy day was easier because of the

luscious meal to come. One of the best things about my creamy avocado soup is that it takes less time to make than it does to eat it with a gluten-free biscuit made from Pamela's baking mix.

The tenderest drop biscuits take about

five minutes to make, with no kneading or rolling. Just mix them up with a large spoon, and they're ready to put in the oven, while the corn cooks. Here's how simple the biscuits are: put flour mix, oil; milk (I use powdered or canned goat milk in a bowl, and stir it up. I like this part because there's no need to fear overmixing. I go ahead and stir to my heart's content.

I melt the coconut oil when my kitchen's cool and it's solid. After it's all blended I simply drop it onto greased parchment baking paper lined cookie sheets. In 10 - 12 minutes they're ready for eating.

By the time the biscuits are ready

the soup's also warm and there's time to open a bag of fresh salad fixin's and dish up a dinner to remember.

That's a happy meal to remember - luscious soup

with fresh hot biscuits and a green salad, ready in 20 minutes

What's better than a case of canned organic corn in the pantry when it's time to turn it into a bowl of nourishing gold!

If you're typically in a hurry to get a weekday dinner done, the canned corn heats a good ten minutes faster than the frozen type.

I usually have both this size and the 54 oz duo pack on hand.

Since coconut oil became my regular baking date this has become my oil of choice. I like that it's delivered directly to my door.

Here's what I use in my gluten-free kitchen. And yes, the 3-pack means I only buy it a couple times per year. I use it in all my cookie, banana bread and pancake recipes.

 

Have you tried my smooth and savory avocado corn soup yet?

      I love that you use organic ingredients too, we try to always support organic food (real food). This looks really good, something I know my family would enjoy.
