This Green Gazpacho with plain yogurt, avocados, cucumbers, and lots of fresh herbs is a delicious, healthy, light, and refreshing soup recipe that is so perfect to beat the summer heat!
Hello everyone! I hope you are doing well. If you haven’t checked your calendar for a while, let me remind you it’s the middle of August (How come?) already! That means we’re slowly moving to fall with the days getting cooler (Yay to this – the best part of summer!)
However, this does not mean I am going to start posting apple and pumpkin recipes. Not yet. Not for at least another month. In fact, I have already made two apple recipes, but only because I am expecting to be quite busy in September, so I simply want to be a bit ahead. In the meantime, I am continuing to embrace summer recipes. What’s on the agenda for the next couple of weeks? You can expect ice cream, glass-shot desserts, donuts, zucchini recipes, and most importantly, some awesome summer and early fall appetizers from Russian cuisine.
As I mentioned, we’re finally having some relief from the summer heatwaves. It’s going to be very comfortable for the next week (Well, you never can trust those weather forecast folks, right? lol), but I am not giving up on summer salads, bruschettas, and cold soup. Speaking of chilled soup, this summer I have shared two recipes that I strongly recommend: this Svekolnik – Russian Cold Beet Soup and this Cherry Gazpacho.
This Green Gazpacho is irresistible delicious, rich, yet light and refreshing Green Gazpacho.
- Yogurt makes an excellent base – it is rich, nutritious, and slightly tart. You can add more or less of lemon juice depending on your yogurt;
- Creamy avocado for a rich and smooth texture;
- Lots of herbs. I strongly recommend using aromatic dill and refreshing mint; green onions, parsley, oregano, and basil would be a nice addition too (But be careful with basil and oregano because of their strong flavour);
- Refreshing cucumbers.
It sounds delicious and refreshing, isn’t it? It is! I hope you’re embarrassing summer days as much as possible (Put back this pumpkin back, folks! lol), and you can join me and enjoy this Green Gazpacho.
Cheers for now.
