Green Gazpacho

Green Gazpacho

Mmmm… cold green soup. Ahem, let’s try that again! I made a refreshing dish that’s bursting with flavors of a summer garden. It’s creamy but light and chilled to make you feel alive again, even on the hottest of days. It lazily comes together – the blender does most of the work and golly, it even looks kinda fancy (for being green liquid). The key to this soup is letting the ingredients marinate, marry or just chill out for a while. After the flavors have some time to develop and get all delicious together just blend it up. Sipping summer from a spoon!

Ingredients for the Green Gazpacho 

6 or so tomatillos

2 cucumbers

1 green bell pepper

1 large jalapeño

1 large green onion

2 garlic cloves

2 cups torn up pieces of bread, like ciabatta (crust removed)

1 cup plain greek yogurt

1/3 cup good olive oil

1/4 cup white wine vinegar or white balsamic vinegar

juice of half a lemon

1 teaspoon salt

some fresh ground pepper

 

Ingredients for the Topping 

1/3 cup chopped cucumber

1/3 cup chopped tomatillos

half an avocado

handful or so pistachios

some goat cheese crumbles

fresh flat leaf parsley

drizzle of kefir or dollop of yogurt

drizzle of olive oil

 

Directions 

Whisk together the yogurt, vinegar, lemon juice, olive oil and salt & pepper in a large bowl. Roughly chop all the ingredients for the soup. Place the chopped ingredients into the large bowl with the yogurt mixture, making sure the bread pieces are fully submerged. Let this marinate for a few hours in the fridge. Put everything into your high speed blender and blend until smooth. Finish with the toppings.
