    What You’ll Need:

    A Sharp Kitchen Knife

    A Food Processor

    Measuring Cups & Spoons

    A Rubber Spatula

    A Medium Sized Kitchen Bowl

    Plastic Wrap

    A Soup Ladle

    4 Chilled Soup Bowls

     

    Ingredients:

    2 cups Avocado Puree (that’s about 4 medium sized Haas avocados)

    1 8-inch Organic English Cucumber, Sliced

    1/4 Cup Sliced Green Onions, White & Tender Green Parts

    2 Tbsp Lemon Juice

    2 Tbsp Lime juice

    2 Cups Chopped Romaine, Packed

    1 tsp Sea Salt

    1/4 tsp White Pepper

    Shakes of hot sauce to personal taste

    About 1 1/2 – 2 Cups Cold Purified Water, as needed

    2 Tbsp Fresh Herbs of Your Personal Choice

     

    How To Put It Together:

    1) To a food processor, add the avocado; puree it until smooth. Scoop the puree into a measuring cup; measure 2 cups then return it to the processor. Add the cucumber; process until combined. Add the green onions, lemon and lime juice; process, scraping down the sides of the processor bowl as needed. Add the chopped romaine, fresh herbs; process until combined. With the processor running, slowly pour in the water, sea salt, white pepper and hot sauce. Check for a ‘creamy’ consistency; add  more water as needed.
     
    2) Pour gazpacho into a kitchen bowl, cover it with plastic wrap, laying the wrap right on the surface of the gazpacho, this will maintain it’s bright green color. Cool for about 4 hours or overnight. To serve: Ladle into into four chilled soup bowls.

     

    3) Serve and enjoy!

     

    Nina’s Tasty Tip:

    I like combining different herbs every time I make this soup –  mint and dill for freshness or basil for an Italian flair, oregano for a Mexican flair.
