Cucumber and cilantro gazpacho

2 portions; 10 min preparation.

There is nothing more refreshing during the hot spring and summer days than a bowl of cold soup. And with cold I don’t mean left overs from last night, but a blended mixture of vegetables and no cooking involved.

You will be surprised how much flavor you can create with a couple of simple raw ingredients. The end result is refreshing and delicious and you lost only about 10 min to make it.

Make the soup as thick as you like. I personally prefer a little thicker soups, but you can add a little bot of water to create the consistency you like. The only problem with this cold soup is that is so yummy that you might turn making it every day.


Ingredients

  • 1 big cucumber, peeled
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro + extra for garnish
  • 250 g Greek yoghurt
  • 50 g pine nuts
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 100 ml water (optional)


Preparation

Blend all ingredients together in a blender or food processor. If the mixture is too thick, add cold water. Adjust the seasoning if necessary. Refrigerate until serving.

Transfer the mixture to a soup bowl. Mince a little bit of fresh cilantro and use it to garnish the bowl. Add some pine nuts on top. Enjoy!
