Green Gazpacho

With St. Patty’s around the corner, go green with this delicious gazpacho.

 Serves 4 to 6

What You Need:

  • 4 large cucumbers, peeled and seeds removed, chopped into large pieces
  • 2 ripe avocados, halved, pitted, and scooped out
  • 3 medium garlic cloves
  • 2 medium green bell peppers, chopped in large pieces
  • 4 green onions, chopped in large pieces
  • 2 cups water
  • Juice of 1-1/2 lemons
  • 1/3 small bunch fresh cilantro 
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Paprika

What You Do:

  1. Set aside a few sprigs of cilantro for garnish. In a food processor, add cucumber, avocado, garlic, peppers, and green onions. Blend until creamy, adding water a little at a time to reach desired consistency. 
  2. Add lemon juice, cilantro, salt, pepper, and cayenne. 
  3. Serve with paprika sprinkled on top and cilantro for garnish. 

Chef’s Tip: If using a blender rather than a food processor, add the cucumbers slowly at first, blending as you go, so there’s a liquid base for the other ingredients.
