The key to this recipe is using the ripest, creamiest Hass avocados you can find. Avocados are high in vitamins C and E and monounsaturated fats that have been shown to help lower cholesterol. To reduce the sodium content, omit the miso paste and simply season the soup with just a hint of sea salt. The bisque will keep for one day in the fridge.
