I decided to make gazpacho for the first time ever, and the idea was a bit daunting to be honest. Gazpacho is a soup made of raw vegetables and it is served cold. It's a traditional Spanish dish from the region of Andalusia. I'll never forget my first mouthful of tomato gazpacho when I was just 15 years old visiting Spain for the first time. I thought it was completely repulsive!
I googled a few recipes seeking inspiration and merged two that seemed pretty unique. I wanted it to be dairy free, so that presented a bit of a challenge since some modern recipes call for yogurt which adds creaminess.
Here is my version of an avocado cucumber gazpacho which my husband and I absolutely loved (and we even licked the bowl).
Cucumber + Avocado Gazpacho:
(Serves 2 LARGE adult appetizers or 4 small appetizers)
P.S. One of the recipes that inspired me can be found here.

I think eating well is a form of self-respect, and that's evident in my recipes.
