This gazpacho recipe is like many of our smoothie bowls… just with a veggie twist!
Gazpacho is a cold soup made entirely of raw vegetables. But, of course, we had to add a leafy green twist to our gazpacho recipe!
For this recipe, we focused on romaine as the leafy green, which is something we don’t often use. Here’s why we used it in this gazpacho recipe:
- Packed with vitamin A: powerful antioxidant that’s influential to your brain function, skin, heart, kidney, lungs, vision, and immune health.
- Loads of vitamin K: Great for bone health by helping with calcium absorption.
- High amounts of folate: This is a b-vitamin that’s needed to create blood cells in bone marrow, and convert carbohydrates into energy.
Why a gazpacho recipe?
You might be wondering: “Why make a gazpacho recipe (cold soup) instead of a warm soup?”
Cooking food isn’t bad at all! But sometimes our body needs an extra boost of nutrients that you get from raw vegetables. The cooking process can reduce the efficacy of some ingredients. Plus, making a gazpacho recipe is quick and easy!
