3. Add the vegetable stock, bring to the boil and then simmer for 20 minutes.

4. Place in a liquidiser and blend until it is smooth.

5. Pass through a fine sieve into a bowl, and place this in a bowl of ice to chill the soup.

6. When the soup is cold, peel and chop the avocado, add to the soup and blend again until it is smooth and season with salt and black pepper.
