Ah don’t you just love a good gazpacho.
I got big into raw soups when I ate raw vegan for 4 years. Well, as you do.
The best thing about a gazpacho is that you need very little in terms of flavor additives, the flavors are just so fresh and perfect, they don’t need much added.
This carrot and avocado soup is a perfect example of that.
The base of this soup is fresh pressed carrot juice! And to that you add avocado, cilantro, parsley, ginger and some sea salt.
So simple, and so delicious.
Garnish with some spring onions and black pepper and you have an appetizer to get excited about.
Of course this is as fresh as it gets, so don’t go making this in advance. The only thing that could potentially be made in advance here is the carrot juice.
But it must be blended up and then served right away. This will allow the freshness of those flavors to be at their peak.
I really think you will love love love this gorgeous carrot and avocado gazpacho. It is:
- Amazingly delicious!
It serves 2 for a fabulous (and impressive) appetizer!
