Roasted Tomatillo and Avocado Soup

I'm still using up those tomatillos. This time I made soup. It's really rich and delicious with really lovely Mexican flavours. If you can get a hold of some tomatillos try this. It can be eaten hot or cold.

Roasted Tomatillo and Avocado Soup (from The Wimpy Vegetarian)
(Serves 4)

500g tomatillos, quartered
1 chilli, quartered
1 white onion, quartered
2 avocados
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 tbsp lime juice
250ml vegetable broth
2 tsp chopped fresh oregano
salt and pepper
1 tbsp crème fraiche
1/2 tsp chipotle paste
Preheat the oven to 200C.
Put the tomatillos, chilli and onions onto a baking sheet and spray with cooking spray. Cook for 30 mins until they are soft.
Put the tomatillos, chilli and onions and one of the avocados into a food processor with the rest of the ingredients and blend until fairly smooth.
Cut the other avocado into cubes and add it to the soup and serve.
