Cucumber Radish gazpacho
recipe from: whats cooking good looking
recipe type: to raw, to soup, to dinner, to lunchserves 4
what you will need:
1/4cup of olive oil
1/2 cup of water
2 tablespoons of white wine vinegar
½ teaspoon of salt a pinch of red pepper flakes pepper
1/2 an avocado
2 large cucumbers, chopped
1 tablespoon of shallots, diced
1 small clove of garlic
minced 3-5 radishes, white or red (if red peel the outside so it does not effect the color of the soup)
1 tablespoon of pine nuts, lightly toasted and roughly chopped
a pinch or two of microgreens
what you need to do:
Place the olive oil, water, vinegar, salt, red pepper flakes, a few cracks of black pepper, avocado and the cucumbers into a blender or food processor.
Blend until it is smooth. Add in the shallots, garlic, and 3 of the radishes and blend again until smooth.
Taste and see if you would like to add more radishes.
Some radishes are spicier than others, so I find that it totally depends on the radish and your tastes.
I like to add more radishes on the side, for more of a bite.
Adjust any other seasoning that you feel necessary.
