Cucumber Gazpacho

Summers are here, and it’s Gazpacho time, isn’t it? Who wouldn’t love these jars of cool goodness? For the uninitiated, Gazpachos are cold Spanish soups served in summers.

Love that it’s raw and full of fibre and minerals. I make the usual gazpacho but grew bored of it and tried this Cool Cucumber Gazpacho and have been a fan ever since. I make a few variations to keep things interested.

However, I am sharing my favourite Cucumber Gazpacho Recipe today. It’s a great vegan and gluten-free option as well.

PREPARATION TIME: 5 minutes
SERVINGS: 2
