healthy green gazpacho
Avocado, jalapeno, spinach and cucumber? This mean green version of gazpacho brings together a wide variety of flavors that make a dish as tasty as the original thing.
If you’re hesitant to stray away from what you’re used to, consider this: spinach has been linked to lowering the risk of cancer, lowering blood pressure and improving bone health. Avocados are filled with heart-healthy fatty acids and have been shown to relieve the symptoms of arthritis.
For this recipe you can use a blender or chop by hand if you don’t have a food processor. If you want a completely smooth soup, go ahead and blend it all together until smooth.
