Corn Avocado Soup

Ages and ages ago we had our first Mush contribution from EJW of the late blog Wiscadoo. As I am a huge slacker I neglected to put it up here before now, sorry EJW!

Corn Avocado Soup

"I made this soup (stolen from Rachael Ray) for the grownups last night and gave my son (almost 9 months) a taste and he ended up eating half a bowl! Jalapenos and all! It was quick and easy and good and good for us and not a bland, boring, baby puree. We all win!"

4 avocados
1 jalepeno
1.5 C corn kernels (patted dry- this seemed weird, but made sense later)
2C. chicken broth or water
salt and pepper

"Chop garlic and cilantro, doesn't have to be too fine, it's gonna get blended. Cook the garlic until it smells good. Toss in the avocado and jalepeno and broth/water. Use a hand blender to puree (or do the whole thing in a food processor). Cook the corn kernels until they roast a little bit, then toss into the soup. I blended these, too, but you could keep them whole for some texture. Season and serve with a little reserved corn and cilantro for garnish (or not, if you're lazy like me). We made some feta crostini and it was the perfect summer dinner."

Thanks EJW, it's 9.30am and I'm already hungry now. If anyone tries this yummy recipe, let us know how it's received by your baby/toddler.
