Green Gazpacho {#vegan #dairyfree} for #SundaySupper

Happy Sunday!!!  Summer is finally here and we are just about to hit the summer heat next week.  What is summer without hot days and the days when you rather eat chilled food than hot food.  At least to me something is missing without those days.  The theme for this week's #SundaySupper is Summer Chillin' and Alayio of Prescetarian Journal is having all of us around her virtual dinner table.

I we love soup any time of year and cold soups are not refreshing but also so quick and easy to make.  So far Gurkenkaltschale {Cucumber Cold Bowl} with cucumber, dill, and "cream", Asparagus Gazpacho, or Gazpacho Andaluz have been on our table.  Now a Green Gazpacho has not yet been served…well, that is until today.

All you need to make this no-fuzz, no-cook soup is chilled ingredients and a blender.  Yes, that's it…super easy, right?

Green Gazpacho
  • 1 large cucumber app. {3/4 lb.}, peeled and cut into large chunks
  • 2 celery stalks, well cleaned and cut into pieces
  • 1 green pepper, cleaned, seeded and cut into chunks
  • 1/2 - 1 full bunch of garlic scapes cut into pieces {depending on how much you like garlic - as alternative you can use 4-6 garlic cloves}
  • 1/2 C ice cubes
  • 1/3 C lemon juice
  • 1-2 tsp salt to taste
  • fresh ground pepper to taste
  • 1 tomato cut into bite sized pieces for garnish
  1. Place all ingredients except salt and pepper into a blender;
  2. Turn blender to "chop" setting until all vegetables are all chopped up.
  3. Add salt & pepper to taste and set blender to "mix" setting.  Mix until everything is thoroughly mixed up.  Adjust spices as needed.
  4. Serve right away, or keep chilled in the fridge until you are ready to eat
  5. For serving top with tomato pieces.
