1 ¾ quarts chicken or vegetable stock
8 avocados, peeled & pitted
2 tablespoons lemon juice
5 cups light cream
1 teaspoon Tabasco
salt and white pepper to taste
6 cups red quinoa, cooked (about 1 lb. dry)
fresh chives for garnish
- In a food processor, pulse one quart of stock, the avocados and the lemon juice until it reaches a smooth consistency.
- Pour into large mixing bowl and stir in cream and remaining stock. Mix well and chill until ready to serve.
- Add salt and white pepper to taste, and mix in red quinoa before serving. Garnish with fresh chives. As is, this recipe is vegetarian; those who eat seafood may want to try adding crabmeat for a twist, as pictured.
