Hey guys! Round two of the new recipe layout that I’m giving a try in order to make room dedicated to answering your questions about wellness and sharing my nutrition expertise. Avocados are everywhere lately but give this recipe a try and I promise you’ll be wanting even more! Read more for the recipe, and let me know below if you like this style of recipe posts which will be short and sweet.

 

Avocado Asparagus Gazpacho
Recipe Type: soup
Prep time:
Total time:
Serves: 4
A chilled spring soup made with avocado, asparagus, and fresh herbs and spices for thick and creamy gazpacho.
Ingredients
  • 3 medium avocados, pitted
  • 1 pound asparagus, roasted or lightly steamed
  • 2 cups unsweetened plain almond milk
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • Garnish options: chopped chives, sprouts, pumpkin seeds, red pepper flakes, fresh herbs like cilantro and parsley
Instructions
  1. Using a high speed blender, combine all ingredients except the roasted asparagus, until smooth. Add asparagus to the blender and pulse to desired thickness- I like to leave the asparagus quite chunky but you have the option to completely puree it with the other ingredients to make a smooth soup.
  2. Store leftovers in an airtight glass container for up to 1 week. Enjoy chilled or gently warm before serving.
  3. Garnish with optional garnish ingredients.

    I made this last night and it’s basically guacamole. My husband and I just ended up dipping crackers in it. It was a nice lighter version of guac, but I would not call it gazpacho.

    • McKel Hill

      It’s a very thick soup as indicated, but you can always thin it out using extra liquids when using a high speed blender. Glad you enjoyed!
