    1. Halve the avocados lengthways, stone and peel them. Cut the flesh into chunks and place in a blender or food processor. Add the lemon juice and blend.
    2. Add the crème fraîche, curry powder and garlic and blend again.
    3. Heat the stock in a saucepan. Gradually add several spoonfuls of the chicken stock to the avocado purée and blend together. Add the avocado mixture to the remaining stock in the pan and heat gently, without boiling. Season to taste and serve in small soup bowls.


    For a celebratory meal, make little wholemeal croûtons and garnish each serving with a few of them plus three cooked, peeled prawns.
