Tomato mango soup with avocado

Tomato mango soup with avocado

At B&B Cortijo la Zapatera we often prepare a three course dinner. As our guests know we try to use as much local products as possible. Because we are located between hills full of mangos and avocados we wanted to cook a dish with these beautiful products.

Whilst searching for a special recipe we found this delicious tomato mango soup on the Trops website, a local agricultural company producing mangos and avocados. And it’s a winning dish! Our guests are always surprised by the combination of these ingredients.So we translated the recipe for you to enjoy as well. It is a very easy and healthy soup to make and it will definitely tickle your taste buds!
