Wine Pairing

This pairs well with crisp, medium-bodied white wines like the Spottswoode Sauvignon Blanc, Napa County/Sonoma County from our Wine Club.

Directions:

In a wide heavy saucepan over medium-low heat, warm the olive oil. Add the shallots and cook, stirring often, until softened but not browned, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, thyme, tomato juice, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat to low and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes.

Pass the soup through a food mill. If the taste and texture are a little thin, return the soup to very low heat and cook, stirring frequently, until thick and flavorful. Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled, at least 3 hours or overnight.

To make the salsa, peel, pit and dice the avocado. In a medium bowl, toss the avocado with the shallot, lime juice, cilantro and olive oil. Season with salt.Ladle the soup into individual bowls. Top each with a spoonful of salsa and a spoonful of sour cream. Serves 4 to 6.
