Avocado mousse with sorrel


Avocado mousse with sorrel
Avocado is rarely paired with sorrel, yet they go well together as the slight acidity of the sorrel balances the smooth richness of the avocado nicely.

In this recipe they are combined in a cool, fresh avocado and sorrel mousse, served here with eggy bread fingers.

Just before serving, stick a bread finger or two into the mousse and garnish with a sorrel leaf. Serve without delay.
Remarks
You can use lime juice instead of lemon. In this case, reduce the quantity by half, as the flavour is much stronger.

If you prepare this the day before serving, do add the Vitamin C and refrigerate covered with plastic film. Only transfer to the final individual glasses next day.

The quantity of sorrel is for guidance, so use more if you like it.
Keeping
1 or 2 days in the fridge, with Vitamin C added, covered with plastic film.
