This is the time of year I get borderline obsessed with blended soups – I find that I crave the texture and they are an excellent way to get some extra bone broth in. I like to double this recipe and have some to heat up for breakfast with my leftover meat. This one also freezes well (sans avocado), so it would make a lovely addition to a batch cooking routine.
