Wow! This was delicious. It's always nice to find a new way to appreciate zucchini and this was new to me. I can see this recipe becoming a summer staple. I threw it all in the blender and added a little extra water towards the end to thin it. Read More

Zucchini is a very-neutral flavored veggie and I wondered if this gazpacho would be bland. Well it was anything but bland full of good flavors. That little bit of vinegar and the jalapeño bring it to life the avocado gives it a creamy texture and the lemon juice brightens the flavor. After I took the photo I put it back into the food processor and added a bit of water because I thought it was too thick (sort of like baby food) but that just may be a personal preference. Do give it a chance to chill to allow the flavors to meld. Thanks Maria for a tasty new gazpacho a real summer treat! Read More
