Meatless Monday is Gazpacho!

freshveggies

Summer days call for cold, refreshing soup and that means one thing- gazpacho.  It’s super fresh, filling and flavorful.

Ingredients:
5 large tomatoes, save one to add after blending.
1/2 yellow cucumber (inspired by my local farmers market)
1 cucumber, save 1/4 to add after blending.
Handful of asparagus
Juice of one lemon
Salt and paper to taste
Tablespoon of your favorite hot sauce

 

Method:
Rough chop all ingredients and let sit for about 20 minutes in a large bowl to marinate flavors.
Blend the vegetable mixture in a blender, Vitamix or food processor.
Drain the  soup and add one freshly chopped tomato and a thick chunk piece of cucumber.
Drizzle with lemon juice and garnish with a sprig of parsley.
Stick a few tortilla chips in and enjoy;) I had an extra edible squash blossom I picked up from the farmer’s market and added it on top of mine. What will you garnish with?
