Avocado and Leek soup (chilled)

A nice summery one for you now (or, in the case of my OH, something you can eat after having a wisdom tooth removed).

3x leeks (white part only), finely chopped
1x small (sweet - ideally red) onion - finely chopped
2x very soft, squidgy avocados
1x clove of garlic, halved
750ml chicken stock

Chuck the leeks and onion into a saucepan and soften them with some olive oil (lid on). When done, splash in a little white wine vinegar to deglaze and mix in the stock.

Bring to the boil and then simmer for 10 mins.

Allow to cool (until warm/tepid).

Chuck into a blender with the avocado and utterly blitz to hell and back a few times.

Allow to cool completely and chill.

Serve with a dollop of creme fraiche - a lovely summery treat!

Optionally add some fresh peas with the stock! :)
