    Altered ingredient amounts. This was good, but I tweaked it quite a bit. I didn't use tomato juice or yoghurt; instead, I blended two very large tomatoes (for a total of 3). I omitted the onion, and I added raw corn cut from the cob for some texture and a little sweetness. I also chopped a third avocado and stirred it in. I blended in about 1/3 cup of coriander, added 1 tsp of sea salt, and added a sprinkle of cumin to each bowl. I may add garlic next time. A note about the flavour: With a litre of tomato juice, this is not going to taste like avocado. The avocado is used only to add a creamy texture. This soup has a nice flavour, but if you're looking for an avocado-flavoured soup, this isn't it. - 29 Sep 2008

    Altered ingredient amounts. An excellent cold soup. I doubled the recipe, used very large avocados, added 1/2 cup more tomato juice, and served 11 people nicely. - 29 Sep 2008

    Gives a new twist to gazpacho and a very tasty, good recipe. I let everyone add their own cayenne as I do not like spicy foods. - 29 Sep 2008
