It’s hot. We love the heat but it also often has us craving something cold. But one cannot subsist on salads and ice cream alone, so we make soup… That’s right, deliciously creamy chilled soup and this spicy avocado gazpacho is just perfect for a hot day.
A Healthy Spicy Vegetable Soup
This slightly different take on gazpacho is full of healthy green veggies, creamy avocado, and just the right amount of heat thanks to the jalapeño. Tomatillos are a great alternative to traditional tomatoes and they also allow it to retain a beautiful and cool green hue.
Herbs are also in abundance this time of year and this soup is full of fresh basil and cilantro. But our favorite ingredient is probably the sugar snap peas. They are just so sweet and flavorful right now. Plus, they make for a fun garnish.
It’s Time for Spicy Avocado Gazpacho
If you are feeling hot and you just can’t eat one more salad, try this chilled spicy avocado gazpacho. You will feel great about all the vegetables you are eating but won’t need to eat a huge heaping plate to do so. Plus, you will have healthy light leftovers that taste just as good a couple days later. There really is nothing better than soup, hot or cold!
