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.

Try this recipe with the Open-faced Sprout Sandwich or a hearty piece of the Nourishing Nut & Seed Bread. Also, try adding pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, or pistachios on top for added crunch.
