Avacado Soup With Pancake Garnish

A Christmas starter with a difference. If you had excess avocados during the season and froze them, then this is a good way to use your produce. 1 Tablespoon Butter 1 Tablespoon Cake Flour 1 Medium Grated Onions 3 Cups Chicken or Vegetable Stock - a stock cube can be used 1 Cup Milk 4 Large Avocados -- mashed Pancakes -- shredded
Parsley for garnish Melt butter and fry flour in this until golden brown but not dark. Add the onion and the chicken stock and milk. Beat so there are no lumps. Boil for ten minutes. Add avacado and whisk well - serve with the shredded pancake and garnish with parsley
