Instead of packing snacks for a road trip, The Smithsonian’s blog suggests roadside foraging. For many drivers and bikers, the idea conjures distressful images of The Beverly Hillbillies, but the fun guide reveals that travelers in places like Europe and Southern California can find luscious figs and fallen avocados that are not on private property. Most of us have to forage at supermarkets for the buttery fruit, but no matter where you find them, make sure to snag a couple extra. Two pureed avocados add silky richness to this fast Chicken-and-Avocado Soup with Fried Tortillas.
