Healthy chicken lime soup with avocado

IMG_0472 copy

My lovely sister-in-law asked me to share a recipe that would have avocado in it, a fruit we both love so much. I had some ideas, one of them being a healthy chicken and lime soup with avocado. Weather haven’t been the greatest and I am down with a bit of flu, so I decided to make a soup. I did spice up my soup with some chilli, but if you don’t like spicy food leave the chilli out or use less of it. Instead of chicken you can use prawns or/and add some extra vegetables in to the soup.
Serves 2-4 people

Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts (boiled)
  • 200 g cherry vine tomatoes (cored and chopped)
  • 1 chopped celery stalk
  • 80 g onion, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • juice of 1 1/2  limes
  • 1 bunch of coriander, chopped
  • 5 cups chicken stock
  • 2 organic, low salt stock cubes (optional)
  • 1 small red chilli, chopped
  • sea salt
  • pepper
  • 1 tsp coconut oil for frying
  • 1 avocado, peeled and diced or sliced
